Your Donation Makes a Difference

You could receive an anonymous message from the patient who received your donation through our Message My Donor program.

“Thank you for your donation! You have made a huge impact in my aunt's life. She has had a journey over the last year and still more to come, but I wanted to take the time to thank you for your time, donation, and assistance. Without you many lives could not go on.”


“I cannot thank you enough for your selfless act of love and care to donate platelets. I am a leukemia patient whose chemo treatment has tanked all my "good" blood counts. While my body is still trying to recover, it's thanks to angels like you who are keeping me alive, one bag at a time. God bless!!!”
