MFB's own Survivor Kylie Evans is encouraging people to give blood after her little girl fell ill.

In 2016 MFB Leading Firefighter Kylie Evans stole the hearts of Austalians as she battled it out on Australian Survivor.

In early January, her two-year-old daughter Ayla began her own battle for survival, after she was rushed to hospital  suffering pneumonia and sepsis.

The little battler continues to slowly recover but has received four blood tranfusions in the process.

Ayla has progressed extremely well, enough so that the doctors believe she is better off at home. Ayla still has a long way to go, but  she will be treated as an outpatient from now on, with Kylie and her husband Luke managing everything from the comfort of the familiar surroundings of their home.

Kylie is issuing the challenge to all MFB staff to make a blood donation, to help others going through medical challenges. Every donation can save three lives.

Call the Australian Red Cross Blood Service to book an appointment on 13 14 95 or online www.donateblood.com.au.

From 1 February to 30 April when you visit your Donor Centre nominate "Arms out for Ayla" on the Red25 form to make sure your donation counts!

"A 'call to arms', a chance to help,
Everyday heroes - it's what you do.
Make a difference, save a life,
give blood - we know it's in you!"

-LFF Kylie Evans
