This spring, Chris traveled across the PNW during our 1,000 THANK YOUs Campaign to share inspirational stories of blood donors and recipients.

While wearing his Seafair’s King Neptune attire, Chris and his daughter donated blood while explaining why giving blood every 56 days is crucial for our local hospitals.

  • Meet Phillip Heinzman! He donates blood so patients won't have to worry about the blood supply during recovery.

"I began donating years ago as I lived the “charity” principle of the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal order dedicated to charity, unity, and fraternity. There is nothing better than to literally GIVE OF YOURSELF so that others may live. It matters not who receives my donation, it matters that it is there to receive. Donating is so easy, I am thankful I have been given the opportunity."

  • We are sounding an emergency call urging Type O+ and O- blood donors to come forward to restore the blood supply after dropping to alarmingly low levels.

“While a four or five-day supply is ideal for patients, our community has less than a 24-hour supply in stock of Type O positive – the most commonly transfused blood type,” said Bloodworks NW Co-Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kirsten Alcorn.

  • When Kristin Kleinhofer’s acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) returned, she picked a mantra, a quote by Christopher Reeve: “Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.” It’s this hope, along with the decision made by two families to donate their babies’ cord blood and the generosity of more than 90 blood donors, that powers Kristin today.

July is Cord Blood Awareness Month! Stem cells from umbilical cord blood are used to treat more than 80 diseases, such as leukemia. To learn more about the Cord Blood Donation Program at Bloodworks NW, visit the link in bio.
