As we kick off National Blood Donor Month, we’d like to take a moment to share the incredible story of Sydney Townsend.
Just after giving birth to her first child in 2018, she was diagnosed with leukemia, changing her life forever.
Thanks to the support of our amazing Central Texas donor community, Sydney has been able to receive blood & platelets at We Are Blood to help her battle the cancer.
Our friends at KXAN’s Studio 512 sat down with Sydney for a TV interview that aired last week. Hear Sydney talk about the importance of giving blood & platelets, why hosting a mobile blood drive in someone’s honor is a great idea, and more in the video below!
