From Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center – On her 18th birthday, Elizabeth happily danced the night way—something she wasn’t able to do 10 years ago, while her arms and legs were temporarily paralyzed due to the side effects of chemotherapy. Thanks in part to Commit for Life donors, Elizabeth received multiple units of platelets over a four-year period and was able to successfully overcome brain and spine cancer. Thank you!! Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center and area patients like Elizabeth, thank you for your blood drive. Your blood drive results are as follows:
