Blood.

Oakes is literally mintes away from having his blood replaced with perfectly cleaned donor blood. If you don't regularly donate, please consider doing so.

For more info look here....Give Blood

Again, if you are so inclined, you can directly impact Oakes by donating in his name. (You do not have to be in St. Louis to do this!)
Here is what to do: To replace blood used by someone who has already received a transfusion, you would need to use the Replacement Credit process. Replacement donations are used to help replenish the community blood supply and credits can be applied to a patient who is using blood to help reduce that patient’s hospital bill. Simply choose the Replacement Credit option on the kiosk, then fill out the slip that prints with the patient’s name and the name of the hospital they have received blood at. Replacement Credits do not require special appointments and can be completed during the standard donation process.

This was the cooler that brought up Oakes' new blood yesterday. It's amazing that such a small act can help out SO much!

  1. I am a friend of Tina's and would love to donate to Oakes but live in OKC. I am assuming I must be in your city to donate to him. Is that correct? Thanks!

  2. Nope, you can donate anywhere. He won't actually get your blood, but he will get a kind of "credit" since you donated in his name. Thank you so much Ashley!
