Of course we have to help out at the United Blood Services

We love our Be The Match peeps too...SO much!

We love the AZ Ghostbusters too...they are awesome and have come
to Mia's blood drives before as well.

Hmmmm....which booth to help out at?!

Mia and Brianne - both Survivors!

We love when Mia's friends come to support her!

Cardinals Pre-Season Be the Match Drive

The day after Mia's 145th, we headed over to Glendale for the last Cardinals
pre-season football game to help with a Be The Match booth.
It helps having someone like Mia to be able to share her story and
inspire people to want to help save lives.

Go Cards! Our very first tickets to sit in the arena at a game...
even though we should be helping at the booth, haha!

Not a bad view from our Be The Match booth!

Looking for heroes to save a life...and it could be you reading this!!
CLICK HERE to see how you can save a life like Mia's.

We had a swarm of cheek swabbers - which is SO awesome!! We
don't mind it getting super busy when we are trying to help save live!!
Thank you to all the Cardinal and Broncos fans for signing up.

Be The Match - Chandler Mall

Mia and little sis helped out at the 9th annual Be The Match Drive 
during Labor Day Weekend at the Chandler Mall.
Hard to miss these cuties outside the Gap wing.

Mia's sister said she'd do the splits for anyone that signed up.
Haha! Way to go raising awareness girls.

Even friends stopped by to help...ok and go shopping. 
Of course!

Mia with Molly the Marrow Monkey.
Way to go guys!

Thank you to everyone who stopped to register.
About 150 stopped to sign up to save a life!

Labor Day included total relaxation for Mia - thanks to blood donors!
