Recently, a patient at a children’s hospital served by the Mid-America Blood Services Division underwent heart transplant surgery and needed 53 units of plasma, 51 units of red blood cells, 17 units of platelets and five units of cryoprecipitate. Because of dedicated Red Cross donors, the products were available for the patient and another life was saved.
Perhaps this life was saved by the generous gift of blood by the donors from Ellsworth. May 21 was the latest bloodmobile, when 78 people came to donate. They were:
Steve Burt, Curt Dumermuth, Gerald Anderson, Trudy Young, David Johnson, Elaine Hines, Ed Haas, Chuck Matzek, Dale Nelson, Eldon Huber, Shirley Granheim, James Vinge, Audrey Gilbertson, Bruce Weiss, Arnold Sarnstrom, Michael Graham, Mary Halls, Mary Lou Raverty, Lorin Bloomstrand, Alvin Eidem, Al Langbein, Leah Stensrud, Connie Kinneman, Douglas Sjostrom, Adelaide Meyer, Clinton Olson, David Kidd, Roger Nelson, Candi Dickerson, Marlene Brunckhorst, Patrick Hines, Glen Wakefield, Kathy Young, Judy Perkins, Dean Hines, Wayne Lundgaard, Marianne Gilbertson, Garrett Burgess, Arline Andreson, Bev Bierbraurer, Judy Strusz, June Gilbertson, Lance Nelson, Suzanne Potter, Connie Leonard, Mary Hines, Coral Borner, Jonah Haugley, Dalton Traynor, Robb Sherman, Kris Webster, Julie Belz, Dennis Foss, Peggy Hoyer, Perry Melstrom, Beth Kidd, Caleb Gustafson, Michelle Selzer, Tricia Motley, Charles Conroy, Jacob Hanson, Ann Samuel, Jerome Johnson, Daniel Herum, Louise Denzer, Pamela Huppert, Carol Johnson, Parker Johnson, Mary Foster, Kirsten Kopp, Tate Kopp, Dianne Anderson, Wayne Dodge, Kathy Meyers, Roxanne Sukowatey, Sheryl Hirman and Dylan Greske.
