Mae is in the studio with blood donor recipient Alyssa Whittier. Alyssa, petite standing at  5 feet tall,  talks about how having a "large" baby led to her needing blood. During labor her body went into shock and many were fearful for her life as she continued to bleed. Doctors needed four units of red blood cells and two units of plasma were needed to save her life -- about half of the amount of blood in her body.
