“We will never forget how we felt when our grandson Caleb went through treatment to cure leukemia when he was just three years old. He lives in Dubuque, and was treated at the Stead Family Children’s Hospital in Iowa City. This past September 17, five years later, his oncologist declared him cancer-free. With our family’s nightmare over, we realized how important it is to give blood and platelets. If you donate blood and platelets, thank you! Encourage others to give. It saves lives.” - Jeri (Grandmother and Burlington Donor Center volunteer) and Jerry Lee (Grandfather and 8 gallon platelet donor)
