Awesome and Beyond is a proud Canadian Blood Services and One Match Partner for Life. Each year we are committed to encouraging at least 100 blood donations and raising much needed awareness about the importance of donating blood and stem cells. This is a super important cause to Tanya, the owner of Awesome and Beyond, because her husband was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia in November 2013 and required a Bone Marrow Transplant (aka Stem Cell Transplant) in February 2015 in order to survive.
“All the science, money and medical treatments in the world would not have saved my husband without donated blood and stem cells. You can read more about this journey on my Bloody Awesome Journey blog. =)”
In 2016, Awesome and Beyond was recognized as the 2016 Partner representing Manitoba, Northern/Eastern Ontario and Nunavut
“Canadian Blood Services hosts a national recognition event in Ottawa every September called Honouring Our Lifeblood. This two day event brings together donors, volunteers, peer recruiters and partners from across Canada to represent the essential contributions these individuals make to our organization.
Nominations submitted to the Partner category represent organizations that have provided outstanding support in one of five regions across the country. I am pleased to inform you that Awesome & Beyond has been nominated and selected as our 2016 Partner representing Manitoba, Northern/Eastern Ontario and Nunavut by the national Honouring Our Lifeblood committee.”
