“My oldest brother Earl was in a motorcycle accident a few years ago on his was to work. The other man failed to stop at a stop sign early in the morning of his accident. He hit my brother so hard that it severed his leg off just about 3 inches about his ankle. Paramedics have told his they almost lost him at the scene of the accident. He has lost 3/4 of his blood volume at the scene. He was quickly taken to the hospital and had been given several pints of blood over his 3 week stay in the hospital. He has a total of 13 in a 3 week period most of which required him receiving blood products. If it weren’t for people donating blood or blood products I wouldn’t have my brother today. I was always afraid to donate I don’t have very good veins and get stuck several time just for when the doctors order blood work. But since my brothers accident I have over come that fear and been donating. Thank you all and God Bless each and every one of you. Here is a picture of us Last year.”
