It all starts here.
This is Hans.
He’s a happy 5-year-old who loves to talk once you give him a chance to warm up.
This blog is for people like Hans.
Two years ago, Hans needed blood after being rushed to the emergency room, just before he was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma. Hundreds of people give blood every day in our region to help people like Hans. This blog is for them, too. And it’s for the many volunteers who tirelessly spread the word about blood needs and organize community events to make a difference.
Through the Commit for Life blog, we hope to listen to and facilitate conversations with blood donors, blood recipients and their families, volunteers and, of course, you. Feel free to share your comments and ask questions. Let us know how blood donations have affected your life.
