October is over, and we are so happy to have had such great participation in our blood donor push! I went through the Facebook groups and have the list from our drive, and I came up with a total of 155 units of blood donated! That is definitely more than Scarlett ever used, and I know that so many patients will be so grateful to have it!
In fact, yesterday, Scarlett's hospital, Lucile Packard Children's, was all over the news for surgical separation of conjoined twins. It is incredibly likely that blood collected at our drive could have been used for those beautiful little girls! THAT is amazing!
We are so proud of our community, both in town and our "blog community", for supporting this. Here are the names of the donors we know about (if you donated but didn't let us know, add a comment!)
