Lives Touched by Blood Donation

Briar: Tiny Girl, Big Fight

“We began to see blood transfusions as her elixir of life – Something that’s necessary for her health and strength.”

Isaac: The Right Side of 50/50

“Without that person’s blood, he could not have survived. That act of kindness, as a parent, as a person, there just aren’t enough thank yous.”

  • Meet Elisabeth Tevault Farley! She started donating once she met the age requirements because she wanted to give back to her community.

"I realized that the folks that donated were my kind of people. We were all there for different reasons but all for the same reason, to save lives. Forty years later, if truth be told, I want to donate more than my brother, Scott, and my sister, Mary. We have a friendly competition - but we are keeping score! I should take over the leaderboard next year!"

Grab a friend or family member and donate together for double the impact!
