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.

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.

Blood Donor

On May 23, 2017 my wife, Sarah, and I were involved in a head-on car collision on I-70 in Indiana. Another driver was fleeing police, lost control of his vehicle and was propelled over the median cable barrier in front of our vehicle. Sarah was flown to St Vincent hospital in Indianapolis with multiple fractures to the pelvis, ribs, sternum and both feet. Her pelvis required 2 surgeries during which she received 8 units of blood. Sarah survived the accident, but is still recovering and learning how to walk.
