This week's image was selected in recognition of the second annual Ava's Blood Drive and of blood donation generally.
Ava's Blood Drive is being held today between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. by Bob and Cristal Hernandez at their home in San Jose. The drive was established in memory of their daughter, Ava, who passed away from neuroblastoma just two weeks short of her fourth birthday. Donors can call (650) 723-7831 or (888) 723-7831 to make an appointment and get directions.
The photo above was taken by a husband whose wife was the recipient of a blood transfusion. Its description says it was posted to thank anonymous blood donors. The recipient pictured is not associated with Ava's Blood Drive.
