Stronger together. As members of the Versiti family, we lift each other up. Thank you for stepping up to save the lives of patients like Lena Harvey, a sickle cell warrior and fierce advocate for others in need.

In Lena’s own words: “I am always overjoyed when I hear that someone has decided to donate blood because it recalls moments from my own life where I thought it could very well be the end until a donor came with their cape. And so I just want to say thank you to the unnamed faces that have decided to become heroes and save my life, save someone else’s life who deserves to live a life. And now I can live and flourish all because you donated blood. Thank you.”
