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
