In July 2010, at the age of 8, Mary Kate was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma - a rare form of aggressive Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Mary Kate received amazing care at Boston Children’s Hospital/Dana Faber. While Mary Kate was in treatment, she received countless life-saving blood transfusions. We cannot thank those selfless donors enough.
Mary Kate has been cancer-free for over two years. She attends 5th grade at Nixon School, loves playing soccer, skiiing, animals and spending time with her older brother ( James) and younger sister ( Norah) . She is a survivor!
Donating blood is one of the most important, selfless, and humanitarian acts that a human can perform, and it doesn't cost a penny. How much blood is needed? Close to forty thousand units is needed every day in America alone. That calculates to someone in this country - a cancer patient, a trauma patient - needing blood every two seconds.
Please consider saving a life.
