“Many years ago I worked as a nurse at the children’s hospital and had a 3-year-old patient named Kaylee who was suffering from a rare life-threatening disease. Her only hope was a blood transfusion from her 5-year-old brother, Brian. When the doctor asked him if he was willing to give his blood to his sister, Brian paused for a few seconds, then said in a soft voice, ‘I’ll do it if it will save her.’
“Later that day I helped oversee the transfusion and sat in the treatment room with the mother during the process. ‘Kaylee already looks better! You’re doing great, Brian,’ I said. He gave me a big smile before tears suddenly filled his eyes. Just then, the doctor returned to see how they were doing, and Brian asked, ‘How much longer until I die?’ It took us all by surprise, then my own eyes burned with tears. I realized that sweet little boy thought he had to give all his blood to his sister – and was willing to do it, without question.” – Morgan Phillips, 62, Seattle
