Scarlett's Blood Drive

We are very excited for our second blood drive!  We already have about 20 appointments filled, but our goal is to fill all 160 appointments!  If you are local (in the SF Bay Area) we would love to see you.  And, since it is Superhero themed, you are welcome to play along - capes, masks, hats...whatever gives you a superpower (we have some fun costumes in the works for Scarlett and our family, so you won't be alone!)

At the event, we will have some wonderful raffle prizes, including...
  • 2 tickets to a Warriors game!
  • A photography session!
  • Gift cards!
  • Gift baskets!
  • Beautiful handmade greeting cards!
More is being donated all the time, and we are very grateful to be able to offer this to our donors.  Donors will get one ticket, but additional tickets will be available, with proceeds going to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.  More news on entertainment is coming soon!

If you are not close by, we would love for you to give blood where ever you are.  All of Scarlett's blood transfusions were made possible by donors - kids (and all age patients) in your area NEED you.  If you do give blood at another location, feel free to take a picture and e-mail it (or post it on our Facebook page) so Scarlett can see!

There was a time when we were told Scarlett would never see a birthday, but now she is 2!!!  That's SUPER!!

Congratulations on Scarlet's upcoming 2nd birthday! I first started following you in January 2011, my son is a few months older than Scarlet. Due to recent overseas travel to malarial endemic areas I won't be able to donate blood, but would like to donate a prize for the raffle. I admire your spirit in confronting this head on and being so transparent about such a hard fight for your little girl; it's no wonder your daughter has so much tenacity, it is obvious where she gets it. Please let me know where I can send an item for your raffle! It would do me a great honor.
