Today, thanks to donors like you, Shannon is back in the ambulance helping others through her job as an EMT. She also stays busy as a mom of three.
“I truly feel that without the generous people who take time out of their busy lives to donate blood, I would not be here today,” said Shannon, who plans on donating blood regularly when she becomes eligible again. “It gives me a whole new outlook on life! I know there are plenty of people who are a lot sicker than I was, but if my story will motivate just one person to donate, then that is three lives potentially saved.”
