Blood Recipient Lena Harvey Says Thanks
Thank you for being a Beacon of Hope and donating lifesaving blood! Local patients like Lena Harvey are humbled by and grateful for your generous gift.
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.”
