Congratulations to Indiana Blood Center’s Donor of the Month…
Master Sergeant Larry Ridge of Farmersburg, Indiana
Larry is no stranger to donating, as he donates blood platelets a remarkable 24 times per year. Larry’s commitment to donating platelets helps with cancer treatments, trauma procedures and surgeries. However, his generosity doesn’t end there.
“He always brings staff cookies and veggie trays when he visits,” said Thatcher Runyon, donor center specialist of Terre Haute Donor Center.
Much like his dedication to donating platelets, Larry is extremely committed to serving the nation. Larry has devoted seven years of his life to the United States Marine Corps and 23 years to the U.S. National Guard. He is currently serving in Kuwait and plans to retire upon his return.
Larry is an inspiring example of a committed donor and serviceman. Follow Larry’s lead and help save lives by Raising Your Sleeve. Make an appointment today at DonorPoint.org.
