Don't forget to Donate Blood!

The blood drive in Brayden's name is just 1 week away! If you haven't signed up yet, there are more slots opening up! You can sign up for an appointment to fit into your schedule. Drop-ins are still welcome! Please help us spread the word. We were so excited to make our goal, but there's still room for more donors. After Brayden's blood transfusion this past weekend, we were again thankful for donors in our area that helped keep his body fighting. Seeing my sweet boy so pale and his lips so gray, heart rate working over time to keep his blood pumping while his levels are so low is just such a scary experience. Watching those 2 units of blood have such a profound effect on him and turn those cheeks & lips back to pink, watching his stats come back into normal range and seeing his energy levels increase is an answer to prayer and thankfulness for a donor who helped make that possible. Each of you can help give that gift of life to others this Christmas!

Brayden and I are sad we are in Little Rock and will miss the Blood Drive. We'll have generous family and friends there donating their time as well to help make this possible. Brayden has a special thank you to each of you after you give that gift! I kept reminding him of that while he was getting his transfusion. Your gift does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. Thank you to all of those who are stepping up to be first-time donors! If you aren't local or able to attend this blood drive, please give blood in your local area and you can mention Brayden's Blood Drive (if you want) so the donation will be given in his name.

We aren't doing this for any other reason than to use Brayden's Journey to help others and allow each of you to realize what a difference you can make by donating. It's our way to try and give back and ensure when other children need blood, there isn't a question of whether or not it's available. Thank you so much for your help in making this possible!!! - code 72712. Location: Bentonville Plaza Suite 120, December 16th. Once you logon, there are directions for the Bentonville Plaza and appointment times to choose from 9-3. PLEASE SIGN UP TODAY!
