Erica, Maria, Ella and Kamila thank a Comic-Con blood donor for lifesaving donation

We went to the Comic-Con blood drive and it was such a positive experience for all of us—we haven’t stopped since then. That was the first time I felt something positive. It was a major turnaround, looking at Ella’s condition in a positive way. She looked up and said, ‘Look, mom! That’s beautiful.’
What ten-year-old would think that blood is beautiful?
She thought it was the greatest thing.
— Erica Martinez, Ella's Mom
