RUSK COUNTY (KLTV) - 60 East Texans rolled up their sleeves to give blood to help a Henderson man recovering from a tragic accident.

Donors gave more than 44 units of blood at the "Heath Roberts Replacement Blood Drive" at Saint Mathews church in Henderson Sunday.

Heath was injured last month in a car crash, that left him with numerous broken bones, including a broken neck. Donors drove in from all over East Texas to help support Roberts.

"I think Heath would be so pleased, overwhelmed, and overjoyed to see everbody whose donated. We are all very humble by all of this. He would just say thank you very, very, much, and so would his wife and his little girl,"said Carol Roberts, Heath's Mother.

If you didn't get a chance to donate blood, you can still help.

You can make donations to "the Heath Roberts Assistance Fund" at any Citizens National Bank.
