Tara Blaesing

Recipient, Wisconsin

Tara suffered complications after giving birth  to twins Benjamin and Imogen, and received a life-saving blood transfusion to survive. “I’m grateful to the generous people who donated blood so that I could recover quickly and focus on our family.”


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.
