Thomas Williams was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia shortly after his 2nd birthday and endured grueling chemotherapy to combat his cancer. As part of his treatment, he received blood transfusions to keep his body strong. Today, Thomas is doing well, and his mom Lori encourages others to donate blood and save the lives of kids like Thomas.
“I didn’t know until Thomas was in treatment that pretty much every child that goes through cancer treatment gets blood products,” she says. “It really does save lives.”
Lori Williams is thankful for the blood transfusions that saved Thomas's life. "It really does save lives."
Because of your support, patients like Magnolia, who received blood transfusions and a tissue transplant to repair congenital heart defects, are able to enjoy a happy, healthy holiday season. Thank you for being a beacon of hope to patients in our communities!
Maggie was born with four different congenital heart defects. The generosity of organ and tissue, and blood and platelet donors saved her life.
