One of our amazing recipients is documenting her journey having a bone marrow transplant this year. McKindree suffers from a rare blood disorder that prevents her body from producing red blood cells. Thankfully, she has found a bone marrow match and is sharing her year-long journey on her blog: http://mckindreemarie.blogspot.com/ #ubsaz #LifeSaved

As the temperature rises, so does the importance of drinking extra water prior to your blood donation. The American Council on Exercise says that water is one of the most essential components of the human body. Water regulates the body’s temperature, cushions and protects vital organs and aids the digestive system. Water not only composes 75 percent of all muscle tissue and about 10 percent of fatty tissue, it also acts within each cell to transport nutrients and dispel waste. It is impossible to sustain life for more than a week without it. Check out more in this month's story in The Cape.

Sending Birthday wishes to Ryan in Prescott Valley! He was born with a rare blood disorder that prevents his body from producing red blood cells. Ryan receives a blood transfusion about once a month just to live a normal life. Thanks to about 75 blood donors, Ryan can enjoy celebrating his 6th birthday with family and friends. Have a great day, Ryan! #ubsaz #LifeSaved
