For my Son

I donate in honour of my son who, at the age of 15 months, was diagnosed with Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia in August 2015. He has since had two stem cell transplants, received over 80 platelet transfusions, over 20 red blood cell transfusions and numerous plasma infusions. I am over the moon happy to say he is currently in remission. My goal is to donate what my little hero has received and then some. I started donating in January of 2017 and have donated three times and my appointment for donation #4 is booked. Family and friends have also been donating by my side. I hope others will follow in my footsteps.

Go Jacobstrong!
