Special Clevelander Blood Drive for Max
Last Saturday, my aunts, uncles and cousins from my mom's side of the family did something very special for our little Max. They drove all the way down from Cleveland (about 20 of them) to donate blood and platelets at the Hoxworth center in Mason! We hear that a few of them had a bit of trouble with light-headedness and fainting afterward but, other than that, they all did well!
Max wrote each of them a special thank you note and told them that with their blood and Ellee's bone marrow, he had hope that he would get all better! We were all extremely touched by this kind and very thoughtful gesture in Max's honor. Not only did these family members replenish much of what Max has needed over the last few weeks but, they helped to save countless other people as well. What an amazing thing!
