Steven Seraphine

Recipient, Treatment, Wisconsin

When 13-year-old Steven grows up, he wants to be a storm chaser. But, leukemia was trying to dash his dreams. Thanks to the generosity of donors, the blood and platelet transfusions Steven receives are helping his body to heal. 

Now Steven can continue to enjoy log rolling, fishing, and video games! “We are very grateful to all of the generous people that donate blood,” says his mom, Anne.

Support Steven through the life-saving gift of blood donation.

People need people, make a difference in someone’s life by donating blood.

We must rely on each other for the gift of blood, and patients in your community rely on the generosity of Versiti’s blood donors to help. Please consider scheduling an appointment to donate. If this is your first time, donating blood is quick, easy and relatively painless. And, it is a great way to give back and help patients in your community.
