“I am so grateful that others have given so that she lived.”
Emily still remembers watching the cooler of blood go by while her sister Ashley was in surgery following a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. “It was frightening,” said Emily of the October 2016 ordeal. “We almost lost her.”
A little more than a year later, Ashley gave birth to her first child. “It has been such a joy. I am so grateful that others have given so that she lived. I had given blood for years but had stopped. Now I renewed my commitment and am back at it. In fact, it was part of my Christmas gift to Ashley.”
