I had never given blood. I knew the importance but still, never gave.
My brother Chris was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia around 2008. Over the years of living with the Leukemia he had to have blood transfusions.
Those blood transfusions is one of the reasons he was able to live over 12 years with the disease. Due to people so selflessly donating my brother was able to have life a little longer.
