Audrina made national news when she was born with a very rare condition that left part of her heart outside her body. Surgeons successfully enclosed her heart within her chest, and she received blood several times during her extended hospital stay.
Lee is strong and healthy now, but as a premature infant, he required a blood transfusion to grow stronger. Now that he is an adult, he understands the importance of donating blood. “Now I donate blood and encourage others to do the same, so hope can be available for others in their time of need,” Lee says.
