Donors like Jessica couldn’t find the words to thank the donors that saved her dad, after he suffered a serious work injury and required donated blood products to save his life. So instead, she and her sister became donors to give back and bring hope to others during the holiday season. 

Jessica and her sister made all the difference for patients, and you can too. Please book and keep your blood or plasma donation appointment this holiday season.
