One theme always seems to shine through when it comes to donors at any of the BioBridge Global subsidiaries: Helping others first.

From those who give blood products as part of the regular routine, to those called to save a life via stem cells, to new mothers asked to donate cord blood, everyone understands the need to be part of something bigger than themselves.

“My friends don’t see the importance of giving, and I just don’t know why,” says Marcos Perez III, a San Antonio postal worker who has donated more than 90 gallons of blood and platelets in the last 40-plus years. “One donation saved my life a long time ago. I want to give back.”

The commitment to selflessness is year-round, but those donations are recognized specifically in April, which is National Donate Life Month.
