KCRA 3 has partnered with Vitalant for its annual blood donation, held in two locations, Loughlin and Sacramento, from January 5th to 8th each year. Jennifer Sousa and her 10-year-old daughter, Piper, know its importance. The difference between blood donation and what they can make. Two years ago, Piper was diagnosed with aplastic anemia. This is a disorder that affects the bone marrow. Blood transfusions are part of Piper’s treatment and she just celebrated the first anniversary of a bone marrow transplant. Looking back on that day, her mom remembers how strong Piper was. “She is the toughest girl I have ever met. She is the toughest person, the times,” said Susa. “She was just a champion.” Her family said she was overwhelmingly grateful to the blood donors for keeping Piper healthy. “Blood donors: they are all our heroes,” Susa said. “We never thank everyone who donated blood, but it’s important.” | Related | 2022 Blood Drive For Life: How to donate during Blood Drive in January When and where will Blood Drive take place? ??
