Blood donations help to save the lives of our M.V.P.s or Most Valuable Patients, like Drue Storm, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at age 2. ALL is a type of cancer in which leukemic cells deplete healthy cells in the body. Since being diagnosed in November 2011, Drue has received blood and platelets a total of eight times.
Joe Ann Storm, Drue’s mother, says blood donations are one of the reasons for Drue’s survival throughout his fight with cancer. “Drue needed this life source replenished not only to live, but also to get strong enough to fight this long three-year battle,” she says.
