The blood drives are especially important because Daniel, as well as his father, relies on blood products every two weeks to survive.

“The importance of donating blood is critical in saving lives. Daniel would not have survived if it wasn’t for blood and plasma donors,” his mother, Dawn, told TAPinto Bordentown in November. “We started Daniel’s Fight because he coded waiting for blood. They did not have a match at the time. So now we hold blood drives every 3 to 4 months.”
