A word of thanks from the American Red Cross

Thank You

Thank you for your recent donations. Please remember, blood donors like you really are helping to save lives - lives like Alex's - each time you give blood. Recipients, their friends and family, and the Red Cross are grateful for your selflessness and generosity.

Four-year-old Alex of Portland, OR was recently diagnosed with T-cell Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. During his treatment, Alex has received several blood and platelet transfusions and will likely need more in the future.

"Our sincere Thank You's to all the donors who help make our hope of Alex beating this cancer a reality. From the bottom of our hearts." - Sara, Alex's mom

To help save lives through blood donation, please make an appointment by calling 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or by visiting our web site.

To learn more about Alex and his battle with cancer, visit his mom's blog called Alex's Battle.
