Carol Sikler, Lafayette!!!

Congratulations, Carol!

Carol started donating platelets in 2001 after her husband became ill and required platelets for survival.

Carol’s husband had a colon disease that required about 70 units of blood during one hospital stay. Carol vowed to replace all the units he had lost.

Her husband passed away in 2003 from the disease. Carol has donated platelets consistently since her husband became ill in the fall of 2000.

She is a self-described cheerleader of Indiana Blood Center and its mission.

Carol’s 16-year-old daughter, Camaran, became a first-time blood donor last month “because her dad would want her to”.

Carol had no idea her platelet donations were putting her in a drawing to win Super Bowl tickets. She was just doing what she always did – donating to save a life.

To date, Carol has logged 143 visits to give either whole blood or platelets to Indiana Blood Center – averaging one visit per month.

Stay tuned for more updates on Carol and her daughter Cammie’s 2012 Super Bowl experience…
