DONOR RECIPIENT STORIES
YOUR DONATED BLOOD DOES SAVE LIVES!
Each pint of donated blood saves the lives of THREE local patients!
On May 13, 2009 Kimberley Cannizzaro, was diagnosed with AML Leukemia. After receiving in-patient treatment at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa & frequent platelet and blood product transfusions in Naples I am now well! "I am eternally grateful for those who donate blood to help save lives. Please give your gift of life to help local patients whose lives depend upon it."
Austin Wood, Age 7
is cancer free and healthy today. But when he was just four years old in the Fall of 2006, he suddenly became very ill. Doctors discovered a mass on Austin’s abdomen and tumors on his kidneys. But, life-saving blood transfusions helped Austin to recover from surgery and become a kidney cancer survivor! Austin & his family visited Community Blood Center's bloodmobile at the 2010 Naples Relay for Life event to thank us for the work we do to help save lives like his!
Andrew Whisman, Age 11
This March Andrew contracted an Ecoli infection. He became very ill and needed frequent blood & plasma transfusions to battle his life-threatening illness. Thanks to donors like you he has made a complete recovery!
