My Dad

My 79 year old dad was in a horrific accident on December 23, 2020. He lost his right arm, broke his pelvis & has had many skin grafts to replace the skin he lost.

At first it was touch & go on whether he would survive. Multiple blood transfusions were given to him during the course of the first few weeks. COVID has kept me from seeing him in the hospital as only my mom is able to visit him. I am so thankful to the hospital staff that have been taking care of him. Feeling utterly helpless I wanted to do something to help so I decided that I would pay it forward & donate blood. If it had not been for the generosity of others there would not have been any blood for my dad. Thank you to everyone who donates blood......your gift helped save my dad.
