Emily’s life was saved thanks to blood donors. She experienced an unexpected and deadly complication during childbirth. Nearly bleeding to death from disseminated intravascular coagulation or DIC (her blood was unable to clot), Emily received 32 units of blood and platelets in a single day. She even met her baby for the first time while receiving a transfusion in the ICU. Today, Emily and her daughter Lucy are both healthy and inspiring advocates for blood donation.
