Give for Texans.
When you donate blood with Carter BloodCare, you are giving more time to your neighbors, your community and to fellow Texans.
Starting at a very young age, Kelly Bernard has felt firsthand what it’s like to live with a condition that relies on our community’s blood supply.
Kelly was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease when she was a baby, and at age four, she had a stroke that left her with a permanent limp in her left leg. Since then, Kelly has been on a blood transfusion regimen. Thanks to regular blood donors, these transfusions make leading a healthy, pain-free and inspiring life possible.
Since birth, 6-year-old Daniel Wendler has been battling a genetic blood disorder called beta thalassemia major.
In order for Daniel to live a full and healthy life, he must undergo a blood transfusion every 21 days. While this illness is lifelong, his fellow Texans who regularly donate blood at Carter BloodCare, have given Daniel and his family hope.
