“Blood provides patients with the greatest gift of all—the gift of life.”

Harlow Millies

Harlow Millies from Hartland, Wis., was diagnosed with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2017. All of a sudden, a happy and healthy child began fighting for her life.

She set out on an intense two and a half year treatment plan, receiving multiple blood and platelet transfusions to help her body recover from the grueling chemotherapy. Harlow and her family are grateful to blood donors for their life-saving generosity and helping her battle cancer.

Blood donation is so important to so many people, and especially to kids like Harlow. We’re thanking donors and asking the community to donate blood, because it provides patients with the greatest gift of all – the gift of life,” says Harlow’s dad, Josh.


People need people, make a difference in someone’s life by donating blood.

We must rely on each other for the gift of blood, and patients in your community rely on the generosity of Versiti’s blood donors to help. Please consider scheduling an appointment to donate. If this is your first time, donating blood is quick, easy and relatively painless. And, it is a great way to give back and help patients in your community.
