Layla’s ‘Blood Draw’ Story Makes Us Proud to Be From Flint
It just goes to show, that a simple gesture can mean so much and make someone’s day!
We were touched by the Flint story that has been circulating on Facebook about Layla — a 4-year-old girl from Flint Township who was having her blood drawn at Quest Diagnostics on Ballenger Highway. According to Layla’s mom Krissy, who shared the story with the pay-it-forward website I’mConcernedAboutTheBluberries.com, Layla was visibly distraught about her appointment. When she reemerged into the waiting room after enduring the procedure, Layla and Krissy were treated to a surprise. “I think she deserves a round of applause!” a complete stranger exclaimed. Everyone in the room clapped for the little girl, helping transform Layla’s tears into a big smile.
Take a look at the Facebook post below. We also applaud Anthony Ray Dunn, who was the first to comment on the thread. “That’s why I still love Flint!”
