14th June – World Blood Donor Day
Since the age of 6 months till today almost 700 people have helped save my life. I couldn’t have survived if these people wouldn’t have donate blood for me. These are my real life heroes!
We thalassemia majors need blood twice / thrice a month. We can’t survive if we don’t get blood. Thank you for being there. Thank you for donating blood for us. Thank you for being our live saver. Thank you so much to help save a life.
Just an humble request to all the blood donors out there.. You can visit thalassemia center, meet #thalassemia fellow and commit to be their blood donor so that you can be sure that a life is being saved from your donation. If even 12 people commit to a thalassemic he / she won’t have to worry much for blood each year. Do think about it.
Happy blood donors day to the real life heroes!
Give blood, share life.

And the marriages between two thalassemia minor is the only reason to increase thalassemia major births in Pakistan.
