Giving Blood for a Friend....

I don't necessarily want to go into details about what happened, but a little over a month ago a coworker of mine, who happens to be a really good friend as well was severely burned while at her home with her husband and friends. She suffered burns on her neck, arms, chest, and face. She was in ICU for 24 days before finally being released 2 weeks ago. She is now at home with her husband in recovery mode. Her family did set up a blog for her at if you want to check it out. My office wanted to do something for her, so we set up a blood drive. The bus came out and parked in the lot so all of our office and the entire building to go give blood in Sasha's name. I had never given blood before, except at a doctors office, but that's not necessarily the same thing. They take about a pint of blood when you are donating. I was a little nervous going in because I am not particularly fond of needles, but it was for a good cause and a good friend so I couldn't not do it. If you are ever able to give blood or do something for someone, I would highly recommend it. Get well soon Sasha!!!
