At just six weeks old, Aubrey became a blood recipient. She was born with Hydronephrosis – an enlargement of the kidney. After an initial surgery to try and repair the kidney, a second surgery was required to remove it. During her second surgery, Aubrey received a life-saving blood transfusion that came from CBCC donors like you.
Today, Aubrey is a healthy, “feisty” and happy little girl. When she takes a break from being full of energy and getting into everything, you can find her snuggling with her favorite “taggy” blanket.
“You don’t realize how important something like this [blood donation] is until it happens to you,” says Aubrey’s mom, April. “When it’s your child, you want blood to be available. It makes you appreciate people who give blood.”
When you donate at CBCC, you’re helping kids like Aubrey. Her family thanks local donors like you for giving blood, giving them hope and saving Aubrey’s life.
CBCC is the primary blood supplier to the region’s patients and hospitals. Every drop stays here. Saving local lives.
