Keryn's Story

Otago

My father received weekly blood transfusions and platelets for about 6 months. This kept him alive while we looked for a match for a bone marrow transplant. When my daughter was born she also received platelets due to a pulmonary bleed in her lungs.
I had to wait until I was no longer breastfeeding but now I donate plasma as often as I can.
