Versiti - Thank you from blood recipient Sue Crowley

Blood Recipient Sue Crowley Says Thanks

“It was pretty miraculous—a gift, over and over.” Hear the rest of Sue’s heartfelt message of gratitude.

Thank you for being a Beacon of Hope and donating blood to help patients like Sue, who survived leukemia thanks, in part, to blood and platelet transfusions.


As members of the Versiti family, we are stronger together. When you donate blood, you give patients like Sue the strength to fight cancer and endure grueling chemotherapy.

In Sue’s own words: “I hadn’t given a lot of thought to blood donation prior to being as sick as I was. I didn’t realize the degree to which that was critical until I was in the hospital bed. Those blood donations helped me a lot—they made a huge and noticeable difference in my well-being.”
