It’s in you to give. Donate blood.
You may be wondering why blood donation is important to us at The Braedon foundation…
Doctors estimated that it would have taken 133 people to donate the amount of blood that gave Braedon his last chance at leading a full life.
James Agnew, Braedon’s step dad is determined to pay off this debt with interest. It will take him 21 years to reach 133 donations but it is a quest that is close to his heart. This picture is from his second donation he made in July.
At Braedon’s celebration of life James asked others to help him pay off the interest.
“I do not want to replace this blood because I have a sense that it is owed but because somewhere, some day we may be able to give a complete stranger their last chance at leading a full life.” (James Agnew)
Together with friends, family and even some loving community members we’ve never met we’ve had had many donations made in Braedon’s memory and honor.
Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. We’ve had lots of donations in Saint John, reached a couple of our Western Provinces and even made it all the way too England. A few have already made it to our second donations too.
Please continue to let us know when you donate, tag our Facebook page, share a picture or send a message if you prefer. Don’t forget to use our hashtag #bravelikebraedon
“Making a difference in our community in Braedon’s memory is the greatest way we can honor him”
Become an organ donor
You may also be wondering why organ donation is important to us at the Braedon foundation and how it relates to our foundation too.
This was the second time in Braedon’s short time here on earth that he was on the transplant list. Without individuals and families being willing to donate many children and adults too of course wouldn’t have a fighting chance.This is a vital part of recovery for many children. Imagine it was your loved one in need.
Talk to your family about organ donation. Make it easy for them to decide by making your wishes clear.
“One organ can save up to eight lives; tissue and eyes donors can improve the lives of up to 75 more” (https://blood.ca/en/organs-tissues)
