Approximate 4 years ago my son had an accident where the iron gate at home came off the rail falling right on him causing a facial/skull avulsion and was airlifted/ treated at children's hospital in la. He needed blood and they had it handy for him something in my heart made me realize its important to donate because you never know when you will need it. After that I made a promise to donate every 3 months and dud that fir 2 years at children's hospital but when I had a total hysterectomy due ti stage 1 cancer I stopped for about a year. I have a busy life having a full time job, 2 kids, runner and wife :) la children's hospital us far so u will now donate through red cross. I want to give back life and if one of my passions is running 100 kilometers in the mountains to stay healthy I want to share it through blood donations. I am also considering platelets donation .
