Jay’s story

“I would describe myself as an ordinary guy, busy working, enjoying time with my family and holidays in my caravan. But three years ago I collapsed suddenly at home. My wife found me unconscious on the floor.

I was rushed to hospital and the doctors found that I had internal bleeding. My only chance of survival was a blood transfusion.

I can’t imagine how my family must have felt at the time, watching me lying there in hospital with drips and tubes coming from me; it must have been terrifying for them.

Thankfully, the blood I desperately needed was available. I made a full recovery and it’s all thanks to blood donors.”
