Why do you donate?

My brother was badly burned and he needed a lot of blood and I lost him due to the burns so I started donating in his honor. He was my only sibling. Our mom and dad had already passed. He pass Nov. 23rd, 2015. I had never donated before but I was so thankful for all the blood they had to give my brother that I wanted to give back to help other families.

What is unique about your story?

I just know I want to be able to help others like they helped my brother.
