The Blood Alliance teams with Joshua Frase Foundation

Donating with The Blood Alliance (TBA) during the month of December means you will be helping fund lifesaving pediatric research with one blood donation! TBA is donating $1 to The Joshua Frase Foundation for each blood donation made at any of our donor centers throughout the month of December to honor the brief life of Joshua Frase, and the future lives his Foundation will save with funding for critical medical research in Myotubular Myopathy (MTM). TBA is also donating $5 for every 50 online accumulated ePoints donated back by donors this month in our Hero Rewards Store located in eDonor at www.igiveblood.com. Additionally, Comcast Business Class is partnering with TBA to make a financial contribution to this cause.

“The Joshua Frase Foundation is dedicated to supporting medical research for MTM to discover the causes of and cures for this deadly disorder,” said Paul Frase, President and founder of the Joshua Frase Foundation (and former Jaguars football player). “As a parent who has lost a child, partnering with an organization like The Blood Alliance— that preserves life and saves lives every day—makes for a perfect partnership. I understand the importance of giving the gift of life, and having it there ready for you when you need it.”

Joshua Frase passed away on Dec. 24, 2010, at the age of 15. His legacy lives on with his Foundation— named in his honor.
