July blood donors save children like Casa Grande’s own two-year-old Nathan Johnson, shown here receiving his 40th blood transfusion.
Did you know . . . Every day, 500 blood donors are needed for patients in the 64 Arizona hospitals depending upon United Blood Services, including Banner Casa Grande Medical Center and Phoenix Children’s Hospital, where Nathan receives his transfusions. Premature babies, trauma victims, as well as patients suffering from cancer, leukemia and heart disease all receive lifesaving blood transfusions. Blood donors save people like two-year-old Nathan, whose life depends upon the generosity of volunteer blood donors.
From Nathan’s mom: “To all the donors out there, I just would like to say that you have gone above and beyond to save my son’s life and the lives of others. Without blood transfusions, I would have lost my little boy. From the bottom of my heart, I thank God for donors for saving my baby and for continuing to save him every month!”
Additionally, all June 1 – August 31 blood donors will be automatically entered to win a 2017 VW Passat R-Line! The Valley Volkswagen dealers have donated the car and partnered with United Blood Services in the 8th annual campaign to help inspire more people to give blood this summer.
