Give in honor of Bryce Wisdom

Your support can give patients a second chance at life

Be #BryceStrong by donating blood or signing up for the marrow registry to honor his life by saving others at participating Judson ISD locations.

Known for his infectious smile, Bryce inspired San Antonio and captured the hearts of our community.

Bryce Wisdom was a Judson High School football player who courageously battled a rare form of kidney cancer known as Wilm’s Tumor. His motto “Bryce Strong” defined his life and took off on social media as #BryceStrong.

Bryce frequently needed blood platelets during his 19 weeks of aggressive chemotherapy treatments following his diagnosis. He lost his battle with cancer last summer.

The first blood drive will be held at Judson High School on April 28, Bryce’s birthday. Bryce would have been 18 years old and a senior at Judson High School. 

Donors will also have the opportunity to join Be The Match, the national marrow donor registry. Joining gives hope to thousands of patients in need of a marrow or stem cell transplants to fight their blood cancers or diseases.

Participating locations:

All blood donations are by appointment only.

For more than 45 years, the nonprofit South Texas Blood & Tissue Center has focused on a critical purpose: to save and improve lives.

Inspired by a group of physicians, our organization was formed to provide blood to the South Texas region – ensuring a safe and adequate blood supply through proper testing, storage and distribution to hospitals. This essential service allows front-line workers to focus on the direct care of patients, with confidence that this lifesaving resource will be there when it’s needed most.

But we didn’t stop there. Over the years, we’ve evolved as the needs of our patients and hospitals have changed, driven to save lives in as many ways as possible.

We couldn’t do this without donors like you. We understand that the gift of donation is a personal, powerful choice that has the potential to touch a life. Today, we offer many ways to make a difference that include:

Our team has also expanded its programs, partnering with leaders within the healthcare industry to develop a wide range of therapies.
