Local patient inspires heroes to look further
June 10, 2016

Every day our recruiters and staff reach into the community to do what seems to be the impossible, to save lives. We pound the pavement inspiring strangers to become heroes, while our techs work round the clock to take what our donors selflessly provide (blood, stem cells, tissue) and transform it into lifesaving treatments for patients in need of transfusions, transplants… and, yes, hope.

But what drives us to do this? On any given day our staff could tell you stories of patients that we’ve fought for and have inspired us. Today that patient is Rowan.

A behind the scenes look at your donation for life
April 13, 2016

Guillermo Robles knew he could make a difference when he came to the GenCure tissue center as a tissue recovery team lead.

He had the training. He had the experience. He had the ability to communicate the technical requirements of the job. He jumped in and went right to work, sharing those skills with members of the team.

But until recently, he hadn’t fully realized the impact he had made.

He was at a tissue recovery, handling paperwork and bagging. Two of the techs were doing the actual collection, explaining their procedures to a new member of the team.

“I was at the back table, just watching,” Robles said. “I was surprised, because every time they said something, it was like I was hearing myself.
