My wife delivered twin girls in March 2011, and after 6 weeks it became apparent that one of the twins, Abbigail, was having a medical issue. She was diagnosed with a condition called Hirshsprung’s Disease. Surgeries were needed to correct this digestive condition, and during the final procedure she would need a blood transfusion. For many years I had donated blood regularly at Miller-Keystone Blood Center and knew they could extract my blood so it could then be given to Abbigail for her transfusion. Testing and compatibility measures were quickly undertaken. We were overjoyed at the news that mine and Abbigail’s blood were medically compatible and that my blood would in fact be used for her blood transfusion. I will never forget the feeling of seeing my 6 week old daughter come out of surgery knowing that my blood donation was running through her tiny body. It was an overpowering and intense feeling. My wife and I dealt with a team of dedicated professionals at Miller-Keystone Blood Center, who in the end contributed to the lifesaving measures that have allowed Abbigail to grow into a vibrant and energetic 15 month old. We are so grateful to the workers and staff of the Miller-Keystone Blood Center. We thank them for all they do and the help they continue to give families and medical patients who, no matter what age, are in need of blood.
