What Are Our Donors Saying?
Giving hope and helping to make a difference.
Our donors are the lifeblood of our business and help in the advancement of medical research. Their small contributions make a huge impact in the lives of patients around the world. Listen to why our donors continue to donate and find out what it means to be a HemaCare Hero.
What does it mean to be a HemaCare Hero?
Did you know that your blood donation can contribute to medical breakthroughs?
Our donors help leading scientists take their research to the next level – enabling the development of therapeutics that can give hope to patients with cancer, diabetes, and other acute and life-threatening conditions. From giving a few hours of your time, to becoming a life-long dedicated donor, people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds are making a huge contribution to creating healthier lives and futures for patients in need.
The cells that are collected from your blood donation can be used in medical research by scientists around the world.
Some key areas of research include oncology, vaccine development, transplant and regenerative biology, and much more. Immune cells from your donation are particularly important, they include peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), T-cells, B-cells, NK-cells, monocytes, and dendritic cells. Cancer, autoimmune disorders, and infectious diseases are all areas where your blood donation is critical.
The development of new therapies for these diseases, and many others, isn’t possible without continuous blood donations from HemaCare Heroes.
How Can My Donation Help Patients?
Today's donations help researchers discover tomorrow's cures.
Chimeric Antigen Receptor-T cell (CAR-T) therapy is a cellular immunotherapy developed to fight cancer. CAR-T cell therapy creates proteins (“receptors”) on the T-cell surface designed to bind to another protein (“antigen”) on the surface of cancer cells. This allows the donor’s T-cells to seek and destroy the cancer cells in the body. CAR-T cell therapy allows targeted cancer cell destruction, and is just one example of how donors can impact the development of cancer therapies for patients.
