Hi everyone! Jeff here...Katie's brother-in-law/site administrator. Christmas is right around the corner and between office parties, traveling, and last minute shopping, life can get pretty stressful. Relief is here! Katie has asked for a special metaphorical stocking stuffer this year. The best part is, you get to relax while doing it!
Many of you know that Katie has been receiving blood transfusions to help her body keep up with her chemotherapy treatment. So far, the count is:
1st Surgery - 1 unit of blood
Round 3/2nd Surgery - 4 units of blood and 3 bags of platelets.
Round 4 - 2 units of blood
Round 5 - 2 units of blood
Round 6 - 2 units of blood
Round 7 - 2 units of blood, 1 bag of platelets
If you're able, please consider donating blood and/or platelets. Blood supplies are really low right now and we need to make sure that when Katie needs it, blood will be there for her. To find a blood drive or a donation center in your area, please go to http://www.redcross.org/give-blood
Again, thank you all for your prayers, love, support, time, efforts, cards, meals, and the many other things you do to help Katie. Let's make this a Christmas Katie will never forget for all the right reasons!
