Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion. Blood donations helped save the life of Sydney Figone, who was diagnosed at age 21 with Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Sydney received many pints of red cells, platelets and plasma to fight the disease. With aggressive chemotherapy and countless blood transfusions from donors, Figone finally entered remission in January 2012. As a BloodSource employee, Sydney enjoys the opportunity to thank donors for their generosity.
