Stacey Tinianov began coordinating our Cisco blood drives in 2009 and, to date, has brought in almost 3,000 units of blood.

She and her husband both donate as often as they can and she loves, loves, loves to tweet about her upcoming blood drives, and her many other activities for that matter, as @coffeemommy.
