Our 3rd Annual CDH Awareness Day Blood Drive was a success! We had 29 donors and were able to collect 33 units of blood. That's enough to potentially help 99 people! We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who came out to our blood drive to donate today, and we also want to thank Rees Masilionis Turley Architecture for allowing us to use their space for the drive again this year. We wouldn't be able to do this without you all. Thank you to everyone out there who wore turquoise today in honor of Sofie. We really appreciate it!
It was great to see some familiar faces from Children's Mercy come out to donate blood in honor of CDH Awareness. It's always fun to show Sofie off to those who cared for her as a baby, now that she's a healthy, silly toddler. To all the nurses and docs and everyone else who cares for sick babies - what you do makes a huge difference, and we are thankful for you!!
Here are a few pics from the drive...
...and of course, HooHoo
Sofie had such a good time playing with Kinley and running around all day. It's just amazing to see the girls running around playing together, just a couple of years after everything they went through in the NICU.
Uh oh, who will walk away with the coveted ball?...
I think the fist pump says it all. haha!
The girls were conspiring to go outside...
