Re: “Goal has students seeing red,” Jan. 5
Thank you so very much for writing about this and I would like to extend my gratitude to these young adults.
I am one of many recipients of a blood product every two weeks for the rest of my life.
For one of my treatments, blood infusion, it takes thousands of donors, so anybody that is donating their blood is a hero to me. They are saving my life and so many many others.
I get IVIG which is one of many different blood products and the more people donate the better for all of us, and for any future patients that need blood.
These kids are my heroes, thank you so very much.
I am an avid promoter for donating blood. You can see why, I have a rare Blood disorder called PID (Primary Immune Deficiency Disorder), but there are many, many more that need blood.
Thank you for getting involved to write the story.
One very grateful patient
