The Walkers

Brooke had experienced a completely normal pregnancy until it came time for their birth. By the end of that day, Brooke needed six units of blood, the oldest twin Bailey needed two units of blood, while her smaller little sister Brenna needed a single unit.

Brooke and Jeff were both blood donors even before that day. “It hits closer to home now. I wouldn’t have all three of them with me today,” Jeff said. “When I pray, I think about how blessed we are and how lucky we are,” added Brooke, who says she sees donation as “our best chance to pay it forward.”
