Two More Blood Drives Added to Honor Bryce Wisdom
What started as a single blood drive to honor the birthday of Bryce Wisdom quickly turned into yet another example of the strength of a community and the power of #BryceStrong.
On what would have been Bryce’s 18th birthday, Judson Independent School District and the Bryce Wisdom Foundation hosted a blood drive in his memory Wednesday. Initially, the district had only planned for there to be one blood drive, but because so many people registered, the district decided to host two more.
“It shows me that #BryceStrong is still alive, and people understand and they are buying into what that means,” said Bryce’s mother, Diana Wisdom, when asked about the overwhelming support for her son.
“#BryceStrong means resiliency. It’s determination, strength. People that I don’t even know are here giving blood, and it is just so awesome, and I can’t say thank you enough because I don’t think they understand really what they are doing in giving back to these people, and other cancer warriors that really truly are needing this, and it helps them recover.”
Bryce passed away in July of 2019 after a tenacious battle with a rare form of kidney cancer known as Wilm’s Tumor.
The next blood drive will be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 11 at Wagner High School. The third blood drive is scheduled for May 13 at Veterans Memorial High School from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
