Be Someone’s Hero. Give Blood.

Amy – New Castle, Delaware

A driver who had fallen asleep at the wheel hit Amy Blackthorn of New Castle, DE during her commute home. Emergency responders cut Amy from her vehicle and she was flown to Christiana hospital. There, she underwent a ten hour long surgery and received many blood transfusions to save her life. Amy is grateful the blood was there when she needed it. She explained, “Saying thank you isn’t enough.” Now, Amy donates whole blood to show her appreciation for those who helped save her life. She visits BBD every 56 days, “You get to catch up with friends and watch TV. It’s relaxing and you feel amazing after you donate!” Amy encourages others to follow suit because each donation has a huge impact, “You become a hero to that patient, their friends, and family members.”
