Rebekah needs transfusions to help her fight Hodgkin Lymphoma
Having blood made me feel like I wasn't dead.
Rebekah has Hodgkin Lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system that makes Rebekah vulnerable to infection. Extensive chemotherapy leaves her feeling weak and tired, and Rebekah has needed several blood and platelet transfusions.
If more people saw the amazing effect blood has on those who need it, they would definitely give blood.
"The transfusions gave me more energy...made me look better, less ill and drained. I felt better straight away. If more people saw the amazing effect blood has on people who need it they would definitely give blood."
