We are please to announce Indiana Blood Center’s Donor of the Month…
Jacqualine Guthrie of Danville, Indiana
Jacqualine is relatively new to donating, having only started in 2011. But she has made up for lost time, donating platelets 9 times from April – September.
According to Jacqualine, she started donating in honor of her mother, who is anemic.
“We would go to the hospital for her to receive blood transfusions and it struck me that other people were donating their blood for my mom,” said Jacqualine. “I just wanted to give back as a way of saying thanks to the people who have helped my mom out.”
Jacqualine primarily donates at the Avon donor center, where the blood collections identify her as a sweet girl and dedicated to Indiana Blood Center’s life-saving mission. Likewise, Jacqualine says she finds the blood technicians to be very nice and make her donating experience more enjoyable.
“I think everyone should donate blood because you never know when you might need it yourself,” said Jacqualine.
