Still on the fence? Consider this:
- According to the American Red Cross, every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood, which means more than 38,000 blood donations are needed each day.
- The four-step donation process (including registration, a mini physical, donation, and recovery (snack!)) takes about an hour.
- One single donation can help up to three people.
- While blood is often used to treat trauma, it is most often used to help cancer patients as more than 1 million people are diagnosed every year, and most will need blood transfusions during chemotherapy treatment.
- If the people who donate blood once or twice a year donated just once more each year, blood shortages would be rare.

(to the tune of "Sweet Georgia Brown," natch)
Georgia's had a pretty good week since her last clinic visit - we've all been battling colds, but I think we're over the hump. GG has come to stay for the week, so the card games and puzzles have been non-stop, and we've been monitoring the growth of the newest additions to the family - two tadpoles! Friday's clinic appointment will be a long one, including day surgery for IT chemotherapy and the first of our new and improved asparaginase shots, so Georgia could really use your good wishes that day!
Also, we're just about three weeks away from Will's first race and the blood drive in Georgia's honor, so click on those icons in the sidebar for more info. And if you want to donate blood (please!), make sure to sign up for an appointment. Georgia is planning on being at both the race kick-off that Saturday and the party that Sunday, so at least stop by and say hi - she'd love to see all of you! Thanks again, for everything!
