This week Susan Shaffer one of our loyal blood donors reached a major milestone. She donated her 30th gallon of blood at our Anchorage center. Susan has been a blood donor for many years and began donating platelets in 2003. We could not fulfill our mission without donors like Susan and it is a joy to see her every two weeks for her appointment. Congratulations Susan!
