“If you are on the fence about donating, there are sick kids that need platelets. Just a small little poke in the arm and you will save a lot of kids,” explained Brianne.

A great support system helped keep Brianne’s spirits high during her time in the hospital. After getting out, Brianne and her family knew that they wanted to give back.

“We decided to do a blood drive for Bri,” explained Abby, Brianne’s mom. “It was our way of helping anybody who needed a transfusion as well.”  

They have now hosted two drives with ImpactLife and more than 70 pints of lifesaving blood have been collected.

Blood donors are always needed. You can help other children like Brianne fight cancer by donating or hosting a blood drive at one of our local ImpactLife donor centers.
