Our hearts and thoughts are with the family, friends, and colleagues of Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Darnell Calhoun, who was killed in the line of duty after responding to a domestic violence call on Friday, Jan. 13.
Calhoun is the second Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy killed in the line of duty in two weeks. Deputy Isaiah Cordero was shot and killed during a traffic stop on Dec. 29.
These horrific incidents serve as a stark reminder of the importance of voluntary blood donation and community members coming together to protect our local blood supply. Few understand more about the necessity of a safe, ample community blood supply than our local law enforcement.
In 2021, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputy Dustin Whitson was shot in the line of duty. LifeStream blood donors were part of the incredible team who saved his life.
Recently, Deputy Whitson shared what blood donation means to him and his family. Watch his story below.

Shooting Survivor Gives Back Through Blood Donation
Nurjahan Boulden was just 21 years old when she was shot with an assault rifle while on vacation in Toronto, Canada in 2006. Now, she works with survivors across the country and encourages others to find acts of kindness (big or small) that they can do to bring hope to themselves and others after mass shootings take place.
Nurjahan is not only a survivor, but she is a LifeStream blood donor. Nurjahan gave the gift of life at LifeStream’s Ontario Donor Center and is encouraging others to help save lives. In fact, she has already scheduled her next appointment.
“I was so moved when a fellow survivor reached out to me saying she was trying to get 22 people to donate blood in honor of the 22 victims who were killed in her hometown of El Paso this week,” Nurjahan said. “I wanted to do my part to spread that kindness and hope with her. It always blows my mind how one choice, one idea, one small gesture can literally save lives. And if each of us find something we can do to help spread hope, together we can change the world.”
Thank you, Nurjahan, for giving the gift of life, for spreading the word about the urgent need for blood, and for helping other survivors feel safe again.
