Every two seconds, someone in the United States receives a blood transfusion. Blood donations help patients like Caden, a busy, active, fun-loving toddler after surviving cardiac surgery as an infant. His family thanks BloodSource blood donors every day for their lifesaving gifts that keep them on their toes, chasing a wonderfully healthy little boy.
