I Received Blood

Norbert's story


Having been a blood donor for many, many years (about 115 donations) I was deferred when I received stents in my heart in 2004. However, in 2011, after a major motor accident, I needed a great number of blood transfusions. I later found out that – coincidentally – it amounted to about 115 pints.

Many thanks to the amazing work of the NZ Blood Service, the Waikato Hospital and everyone involved in saving my life!
