Just under 2 weeks ago, a very good mate of mine had a horrific bike accident. Extensive internal bleeding, she split her liver in 2, ripped two arteries, damaged her spleen, kidneys and bones. All at a speed of less than 40kmh turning into a street on her way to work. Your body holds 24 units of blood, she's used 130. Without people donating blood and blood products, one of the most fantastic people I know wouldn't even be still with us. She has an incredibly hard journey in front of her, but I am so incredibly thankful that she is still here at all. I ask everyone who possibly can to donate blood, you mightn't know Sasha, but I thank everyone who has ever given blood and sincerely ask everyone who can to do so, you never know who might need it. Please take care.
