"Without You, I Wouldn't Be Here." Two Years of the Bloodworks Thank the Donor Program

Thank the Donor tags have been attached to all Bloodworks Northwest blood products since April 2019, giving patients the opportunity to thank the person who directly helped save their life.

“Thank you for your donation to my son. He is undergoing cancer treatments and this is truly life-giving for him. We are forever grateful.”

 Go back.

Read that text.

That parent wrote it for a donor like you because that’s the life you create in the world when you donate blood.

Every time you donate, you can give HOPE, LIFE, and a FIGHTING CHANCE to a desperate parent, unable to save their child themselves.

A child with a whole life ahead of them that cancer has no right to take.

The good news? With you by that child’s side, cancer won’t stand a chance.

Your response to this truth is simple: Donate blood every 56 days. Make it a habit, a lifestyle, a religion, a cause, a point of pride, a Reason for Hope.

Because until a cure is found, parents and children like these will always need your help, with a gift that only you can give. So make your next appointment now; patients like this child and so many others can’t wait, so neither should you.

“My name is mom; teacher; animal lover; nature lover. My body is trying to kill me; your selfless act saved me. Thank you, a million times over; thank you.”
