He was only two
really, not quite
diagnosed with leukemia
not enuff red or white cells
blue with pain
needed those platelets
clumppin into veins
without he coulda
bled to death
he is now 24
almost twenty-five
thank you for the gift
you saved his life...

Our son Nathan was diagnosed with AML at two...spent 7 weeks in the hospital, bags and bags of platelets saved his life, kept him from slipping away so we could heal him. Thanks for the blood, it is/was a wonderful gift.
