Local Girl Gives Blood In Honor of Sister

Chattanooga, TN (WDEF) For her 16th birthday, a local girl gave blood for the first time in honor of her sister.

Bailey Bryant’s sister Christian died from leukemia in 2012.

Bailey has been thinking about doing this in her honor for about a year now, but couldn’t do it until she was 16.

She says it’s important to get the word out about this cancer because many people are dying from it.

Bailey says, "She was the bravest person and strongest I know and to go through something like that is the worst thing that’s gonna ever happened to someone, so just give blood and save a life."

Christian Bryant had won the Blood Assurance’s scholarship, but passed away before she got to go to college.

Instead the money was donated to her foundation.
