Piper's Story

After being born prematurely, Piper Pate arrived into this world at 27 weeks—weighing 21 ounces. She received more than 40 blood transfusions and two major surgeries. Piper now weighs eight pounds at six months old. “This was possible because of the selfless act of donors stepping up and literally giving the gift of life.” – Jordan Grimes Pate – Mother of Piper
