Vick plans to regularly donate. After donating blood in April, she learned that her blood also is ideal for platelet donations, which is a more intense process, but she plans on registering for that soon, too.
“It’s all for Michael,” Vick said. “Now my blood is going to help keep somebody alive, no matter if it’s for a day or 100 days, it’s going to help somebody.
“And being that was Michael’s last wish, I’m for sure going to carry it on.”
Want to donate? Tidelands Health partners with the American Red Cross and The Blood Connection to host several blood drives each month in Horry and Georgetown counties. Check out upcoming blood drives through the American Red Cross here and through The Blood Connection here.
