Congratulations, Chris!

Meet Chris Selvage, a Fishers resident who began donating whole blood in 1986 as a way to give back to his community.

In May 2009, Chris learned about the importance of platelets when his mom discovered she had a low platelet count. After this discovery, Chris made a switch and began donating platelets.

Chris has made donating platelets part of his routine, donating every few weeks in order to “fulfill his role.”

Chris’s dedication to the lifesaving cause of donating platelets has provided him with a reward he never could have imagined.

“I was shocked when I heard I’d won,” said Chris. “I thought I might get ‘lucky’ with some of the other prizes, but didn’t think I would win the BIG one. I will admit it was difficult to focus at work the rest of the day.”

While Chris enjoys some of the perks that come with donating blood, what really motivates Chris to donate is his desire to do something for others.

“As Americans, we are proud of our troops that defend our country and save lives,” said Chris. “But shouldn’t we do something to be proud of ourselves? You can save lives too and you don’t have to enlist in the army to do so. A little poke in the arm is all it takes.”
