Thanks for visiting my web site. I'm one of just 700 people in the world with Diamond Blackfan Anemia. This is when my bone marrow produces insufficient red blood cells for my body's needs. As a result, I must have a blood transfusion every couple of weeks. I'm alive because people like YOU who continue to donate blood. But I'm not the only child in need of blood. There are many children who need blood transfusions because of burns, injuries, surgeries, etc.
The donation of one pint of blood from one adult will save up to three lives. You can help by donating blood at your local Red Cross Donor Center. Make sure to tell them that you're donating in honor of Lizzie Bell. Everyone will thank you for your kindness and generosity.
You may have seen me on the ABC Television Program, "Extreme Makeover - Home Edition". My family was chosen to receive a new house. It's beautiful! Our old house was falling apart and our new home was built in about 100 hours. It was awesome! More than 3,000 volunteers participated. It's amazing what we can do when we work together.
Spending so much time in hospitals during the past 17 years has given me a clear view of the things that kids need to make them more comfortable and less fearful while they're in the hospital for treatment.
Send me an email if you need more information about how and where to make tax deductible contributions to my foundation (John P. Bell Family Foundation) to help us fund our projects for kids, or if you'd like more information about the television program "Extreme Makeover", if you'd like more information about donating blood, or if you just want to talk to me, personally. I answer all of my emails and I'd be delighted to talk to you.
We update our website with new information, events and campaigns, so come back and visit here often. You'll find lists of things that are happening, places where I've been invited to speak, Fund Drives, Blood Drives (in your area) and more.
But you can help kids like me right now -- today. When you contribute funds or blood, you help medically fragile kids like me get through another day. Thanks.
