One year and 19 blood transfusions after becoming seriously ill and being diagnosed with a rare blood disorder called Auto Immune Hemolytic Anemia (AIHA), little Henry Heckenberg, a.k.a. “Superman Henry” is feeling much better approaching his third birthday. His family called on all superheroes, even those without capes, to help celebrate by taking part in a blood drive and marrow registry drive.
We're celebrating moms, so many of whom are an inspiration. This Mother's Day we're sharing some of their stories, from moms who donate blood and/or marrow, those who are alive and well because of the generosity of blood donors and some who have been on both the giving and receiving end of those lifesaving gifts.
Bonfils is proud to partner with Levitt Pavilion Denver in Ruby Hill Park to present the following free concerts:
April is National Donate Life Month, when we help Donate Life America encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and celebrate those who have saved lives through the gift of donation.
Maintaining a steady blood supply for patients in need doesn't take a holiday. While many schools go on spring break in late March, like other times of year when travel peaks, blood donations tend to drop.
