It was once again great to work with Versiti Blood Center of Illinois. We went above our set goal and I look forward to future successful blood drives. I would like to give a special thanks to the phlebotomist Heather! I typically have trouble giving blood because it is tough to find a vein, but Heather did it on her first try! The photo below is of Heather and I. 


Here are the official numbers we received on the lab report:

Goal: 15

Scheduled Donors: 24 Registered Donors: 23

Whole Blood: 15

Double Red Cell (DRC) – 2 donors for 4 units

Total Units: 20

Potential number of patients helped through our efforts: 60!

On behalf of Myself and my staff, I would like to thank everyone who donated! We could not have fullfilled this lifesaving mission without you!
