My story is simple- I want to do my part to save lives!!

It started with my mom and grandma. They were donors. I looked up to both of them and wanted to continue with saving lives, so I started giving blood.

I can remember my grandma telling me that she would get called in the middle of the night to donate blood because she had a very rare blood type, RH negative.

I always wanted to help people! I continued to donate over the years until I learned that I was diagnosed with cervical cancer back in 2008. I had to take a break but fortunately, everything went well and I am cancer free to this day!

I learned about platelet donation and how important this is to cancer patients. I thought that it would be a WONDERFUL way for me to give back! I do struggle from time to time with BP and lower iron levels that prevents me from donating, but I will always try as long as I have breath in my lungs!
