These Mums are here today thanks to blood donors – Tracey’s Story

Emily is aged 5 and is a happy little girl who loves dancing and riding her pink bicycle. She loves the Disney movie ‘Frozen’ and her cuddly friend Bed-Ted is never very far from her side.

Proud Mum Tracey wouldn’t be here to watch her daughter play and grow without the help of blood and platelet donors and would like to say a very big ‘Thank You’ to everyone who donates.

Tracey developed pre-eclampsia in the later stages of her pregnancy and it became necessary for her to undergo an emergency caesarean section to deliver baby Emily safely. In order for her to have the surgery, she needed several transfusions of both blood and platelets.

“PLEASE give blood…you could save a life. You saved mine.”

“Thanks to you I get to cwtch my little girl and see her grow up. I can never say thank you enough.”
