We are honored to be able to include the insignia for the American Red Cross Blood Services on our website, because Kelly Anne Dolan and her sister Kim relied on the generosity and kindness of blood donors throughout their illness. They, like so many children diagnosed with blood disorders, leukemia, and other forms of cancer, required regular transfusions for their treatments and to get beyond a crisis. Kelly Anne and Kim were transfused as often as 15 times a month—approximately 700-800 units of blood products during the course of their illness.
How can you thank a blood donor? The Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund was established as a way to "give back" to the more than 700 blood donors who allowed the Dolan family time to enjoy Kelly Anne and who also made it possible for Kim to live long enough to find a cure. Blood donors are our heroes! We can't thank them enough!
The need for blood is ongoing. Please consider making a donation soon, if not today! See our Resources and Links page for more information about the Red Cross.
