In 2017, Brie was 22 weeks pregnant with her son, Cooper, who was born via emergency C-section due to a uterine artery rupture. Sadly, he did not survive. Brie’s doctors transferred her to the Intensive Care Unit. Brie received 54 units of blood products over 14 hours before doctors were able to stabilize her condition. Four years later, she is celebrating her daughter Emerson’s first birthday. “Without the blood products from Vitalant I wouldn’t be here today and I am so grateful to all donors,” Brie said. “Thank you! You are truly giving someone another day to live!”
Dani describes Nov. 4, 2017 as the best and worst day of her life. Following an uneventful labor, soon after she gave birth to her son, Corbin, she began hemorrhaging and was fearful she’d never see her family again. Doctors rushed her to the operating room where they saved her life with the help of more than a dozen units of red blood cells, platelets and plasma. “My family and I will be forever grateful for the quick action of my medical team and especially for the selfless blood donors whose precious donation saved my life,” Dani said. “It’s because of you that I get to hold, kiss, snuggle, watch, teach and always be there for my son. Thank you!”
"I believe the idea that my blood could help save a life is so amazing. Even though I am not a trained medical professional, I can still make a positive impact on others." — Chris, Blood Donor
