Stephanie J.

Jupiter, Florida

When my oldest daughter, Stephanie, was 5 years old she contracted a rare disease that took the doctors a while to diagnose. By the time they did, it was a life threatening situation.

My husband and I were heartbroken when we got the news that our daughter's body was killing off white blood cells faster than they could transfuse blood. We could no longer deny the fact that we were losing our precious little daughter.

The blood that she received though donors like you, bought us the time we needed to save her life. I never forgot that generosity. Staying two extra days in the pediatric cancer unit, I saw what those parents go through and I had a big change of heart about donating blood.

Prior to this time I was afraid to give blood, so I gave excuses for not even trying. After those critical days in the hospital I didn't care about my fears anymore. I just wanted to help families like ours that needed one hour of my life to save a life. Now, 17 years later, our daughter is graduating from college in the spring and our life is one of gratitude!

Remembering that gratitude I can't even wait to give blood again. If you feel like I did, I hope you will just go in!! Just do it! You are saving a life and it is so worth it!!!
