Hudson Harloff

Blood Donation, Michigan

Hudson Harloff’s body isn’t able to produce red blood cells, so every couple of weeks the toddler needs a blood transfusion to stay alive. Unfortunately, he also has a blood type shared by only 3 percent of Americans.

"Before he was born, I didn’t think about blood donation. I don’t think most people do," said mom Lisa Harloff, "Now, I hope putting a face to it would help. Seeing Hudson shows the type of difference they’re making."
