Story:At the time I worked evenings for the Disney's Lion King Production at the Hollywood Pantages Theater. I was at home sleeping when my husband ran inside and woke me up screaming turn on the news. My husband and I watched the news in terror not quite comprehending what had just happened! My stomach started to hurt, and I started to feel anxious and thinking that there has to be something I can do. My husband and I immediately went to our parents house; we both had an overwhelming feeling to be with our families. I can remember watching the T.V. almost all day. The next day I realized there has to be something I can do. I updated my resume and faxed it to the American Red Cross, and asked Human Resources what I could do for them. I was shortly then hired as a Blood Donor Recruiter. I am still working for the Red Cross educating the public the importance of donating blood before a tragedy occurs, and coordinating blood drives in the local community.
