What People Say About Us
I just feel like it’s something I should do whenever I can. And, giving blood is really not hard. You just have to show up.
How else can you help three people resting in a comfortable chair talking to nice people? It’s cool to know you’re helping others. You can’t beat the feeling.
All I need to do now is live my life one day at a time, enjoy my husband and my son. Oh, and I have to learn to live as a healthy person again. It’s so liberating not to have to fight an illness.
