More than 300 individual Bonfils blood donors unknowingly saved Cassidy Smith’s life following the birth of her daughter at Denver’s St. Joseph Hospital in 2012. This week, Cassidy and her family had the chance to meet and personally thank many of those donors, members of the hospital medical team and Bonfils employees who together played a critical role in her recovery.
People rarely think about their blood type. But if that type was to go “missing” in everyday life, they may begin to pay closer attention to the need for blood. Bonfils is asking you to join the International Missing Type campaign by simply removing the letters A, B and O (the main blood groups) from your communications all during the week of Aug. 14-21.
Thanks to the hundreds of Coloradans who partnered with Bonfils Blood Center and the nonprofit Music Saves Lives and who got to enjoy VIP access to Vans Warped Tour at Pepsi Center in Denver on Sunday, July 31.
It's an exciting time at Bonfils Blood Center as we introduce the first new blood product in about 20 years to help patients in need across Colorado and beyond.
