Councilmember overcomes fear, donates blood for a good cause
CityStream: Councilmember Mosqueda Overcomes Fear, Donates Blood

Seattle City Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda has long been scared of needles. That changed when her friend nearly died after giving birth and needed 16 units of blood to survive. Now, Mosqueda has set aside her fear and is donating blood as the region deals with a severe shortage in supply.

Councilmember Mosqueda also says there's an urgent need for people of color to roll up their sleeves since the need is great. Brian Callanan reports.
