I Needed Blood Once

When I was born I was very sick. My mom and I had very incompatible blood types, and unfortunately my mom wasn't given the shot that might have helped when she was pregnant with my sister. Immediately after my birth I was transferred to a NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) and needed a total blood transfusion. Now I'm older and able to donate, and I continue to donate to help others like me who need that blood to survive.
