Tara Brower is in the fight for her life. She was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) on December 1, 2020. She credits blood donations from selfless strangers for her ability to keep fighting.
Amy Slabaugh was simply amazed.
The American Red Cross had organized a blood drive in honor of her son, Ian, who has battled Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia for more than five years. The goal was to get 50 donors for the Feb. 2 event, but 79 people registered, everyone showed up, and everyone was able to give blood.
