Dana believes her family is lucky for many reasons. Her son Luke's cancer diagnosis happened early, and he received treatment immediately. Additionally, blood donors have enabled him to receive the blood and platelets he has needed. "Giving blood will change the life of someone you may never meet," Dana says.
Brandon doesn't remember receiving blood - since his need happened more than 20 years ago, when he was a very small child. But he knows that his life is owed to the individuals who made sure he received the units he needed. He celebrated his wedding last year and looks forward to more happy occasions, thanks to those who Commit for Life!
