Congratulations to Indiana Blood Center’s Donor of the Month…
Is there someone in your life who gives and gives and just when you think there’s nothing left, they give some more? Meet your donor of the month, Michael Moore—also known as Firehouse Mike.
Since Michael, 56, has always been involved with emergency services, the idea of donating blood came naturally, as continuously sees firsthand the need for blood.
“I have always cared about other people,” said Michael, hazardous materials trainer of Safe Transportation Training Specialists. “I just like to help.”
Michael, former Westfield Fire Department employee, started donating blood at Indiana Blood Center in 1995. Later, while visiting our Carmel donor center, he was told he was a good fit for Indiana Blood Center’s platelet program. He has been a dedicated platelet donor ever since donating every three weeks.
Continuing on his path to community service, Michael is a strong advocate of organ donation, as well. He is a registered donor through Donate Life Indiana. He has also joined the bone marrow registry through Be The Match, national bone marrow program.
Michael’s noble spirit is spread throughout the community in more ways than one. When encouraging young people to donate blood, Michael inspires by reminding the youth that donating blood is just the right thing to do.
“It’s not about us; it’s about helping others,” said Michael.
