Blood Donor

In November, 1994, the church to which our family were members was hosting a blood drive. Being a Christian I understood that my body was given to me by God. As a steward of it I should make as much of it available to others as possible. I began donating

Blood Recipient

I was a passenger in the back seat of a severe car accident at the age of 15. I had multiple lacerations all over my right arm; and I lost a lot of blood. I received three units of blood; which helped me recover from the wounds and three broken bones. I have always appreciated those three donors' time; and I try to return the favor. I have donated over 60 units thus far, and donate regularly 6 times per year.

Blood Donor

My mother was given a blood transfusion after I was born. She has always told me that when she got the transfusion it made her feel 100% better as soon as she received it which allowed for her to function normally again. I give because if I can help others to feel better instantly it is worth it.

Blood Recipient

During delivery of my now 17 yr old son, I experienced a uterine rupture. Due to internal bleeding and excessive loss of blood, my blood pressure dropped to near fatal readings. I was wisked into emergency surgery, and received 6 units of blood. I am forever thankful for everyone who donates blood, as it saved my life that day. I give blood whenever I am able to and encourage others to do the same.
