Every two seconds someone in the us needs blood or platelets, according to the American Red Cross.

More than 38,000 blood donations are needed every day, and you could be the one to help.

Your blood donation help people like Laura Casenllini.

Laura is a survivor of devastating car crash that left her with a traumatic brain injury back in 2011.

The crash was caused by a drunk driver.

Laura was in need of 5 units of blood.

With a massive blood transfusion, Laura continued her fight to regain her physical and cognitive abilities.

Laura says says those transfusions changed the trajectory of her life.

“It helped saved my life. You walk around with all that blood, why not give it to someone else,” Laura said.
