Still Fighting

After being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and it took a turn for the worse causing my hemoglobin to drop dangerously low, I needed a few blood transfusions. I have never felt so weak and sick in my entire life, to the point where I couldn’t even shower. If it wasn’t for the generous people who donated I’m not sure what would have happened.

 

Then I was diagnosed with ITP and my platelets decided to take a hit too, reaching extremely low levels and I received a platelet infusion, which I honestly didn’t even know was a thing and I am so thankful that it is!

 

So a huge shout out and big appreciation to everyone who donates. It saves lives and gives strength to whoever is in need. Something I can vouch for! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
