A New Heart for Johnny!

I have donated blood a few times in the past couple of years because it was "The right thing to do." Little did I know that my husband John would require quite a bit of donated blood in a recent open heart surgery to replace his valve. John was born with a defect in his aortic valve and it finally gave out in June of 2013 at age 51. Without donors, there would be no blood for him during his critical 7 + hour surgery... I just donated again last week in his honor and wanted to thank God and thank EVERYONE that donates! Save a life, be a blessing... I'm so grateful and will never forget to do my part like someone did for him! :) Diane
