I am thankful to blood donors because they kept me alive. I spent most of my childhood in the hospital and eventually received a bone marrow transplant. Without blood and platelets I wouldn't be here today. I am now a freshman in college and I spent a lot of time riding horses and helping my family take care of our animals. My mother was with me every step of the way and now she donates blood so she can help other children live to see another day.
