For cancer patients, blood products are a key to survival. When initially diagnosed with leukemia in September 2012, BJ's first treatment was a blood transfusion. Over the next 3 1/2 years, just at Levine Children's Hospital, he received 85 units of platelets, and 68 units of red blood cells. We are truly grateful for the blood and platelet donations that prolonged his life.
Consider giving the gift of life. Give blood and platelets.
