Rebecca: Rebecca is a fuel tax examiner for the State of Wyoming , Department of Transportation – Had diabetes with many kidney complications. – Needed both a kidney and a pancreas from the same donor
Dan Baxter: Dan is Managing Director at Kaiser and Company Investment Services
For many years, Dan was a regular blood donor.
His body suddenly cycled through periods when it stopped making platelets, so his blood would not clot and he bruised easily. Over several months, it got worse and worse
At one point, he had so few platelets that he almost bled to death at CRMC. Blood was leaking through his blood vessels; doctors couldn’t get into a vein and almost died.
He was on the cancer floor at the hospital during recovery and saw how many cancer patients needed blood
