Our fight, our story.

My 4 year old son, Aidan, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in July of 2019. Since then, he has needed 2 platelet transfusions, and 2 blood transfusions within the last 4 months when his counts dropped as a result of his leukemia and also the chemotherapy. He will continue to need transfusions for the next 3 years during his treatment, and once complete, I pray and hope he never needs another one again. The photo I have attached is of the night of his Diagnosis.

 

Everyone who donates helps children (and adults as well) who are fighting for their lives. I can't thank everyone enough for the help that they provide and I cannot stress enough how you all donating blood literally saves lives. Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart.
