Sarah Gross | Rare Blood Recipient


One in 75,000 – that’s how rare Sarah’s blood type is. She was “completely unaware” of the rarity until she began treatment for leukemia in 2018. Versiti was able to find donors who match her rare type, allowing her to receive the blood transfusions she needs to battle and beat cancer.
