Troy was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness a few years back, and has thankfully recovered from that. But, without 9 pints of blood from donors like you, Troy may not have been here today.

Now, at 7 years old, Troy is like any other happy and healthy kid. Though, he wants to make sure others like him can also get the same life-saving blood transfusions, and is working toward that with #TroyStrong.

Watch the interview below to hear all about Troy's story from Wes Ross, and if you'd like to donate, you'll find the next #TroyStrong blood drive locations below the video.
