Plasma has changed my life; I haven’t been in the hospital since starting plasma in January 2007. With plasma, I am fighting infections I couldn’t before. I am thankful for donors - they make my life healthier and allow me to enjoy some of my hobbies, which include spending time with my family and making quilts.

Ricky & Mackenzie

Like so many people affected by rare immune deficiencies, Kim (mother), struggled for years in search of the cause for her son Ricky’s constant illnesses. As often happens in cases like Ricky’s, even a simple cold could turn the family’s life upside down. Ricky was finally diagnosed with Common Variable Immune Deficiency at age 11 and his younger sister Mackenzie shortly afterwards at age 8. Kim described their home as once being like "a bubble" as the family tried to keep the children healthy before the diagnosis. Today Ricky and Mackenzie can spend more time outside their home thanks to the significant improvements plasma-based therapies have made to their health.

"We saw remarkable changes in them, so when they were asked to be the Adopt-a-Patients for CSL Plasma, we were eager to meet the people saving our children’s lives. And the challenge of living with a chronic illness made the children curious to learn more about plasma products. Speaking to donors and employees and sharing our hearts and lives with theirs is THE most profound beautiful feeling of love we have ever experienced in our lives. Knowing that strangers, from all walks of life, are playing an important role in our children’s future is such a surreal experience that is hard to put into words."

Living with a life-threatening disease could seem like a terrible thing to live with, but because of taking plasma based medication, I can live a FULL LIFE, and do what any other person can do! I am able to play sports, and be active in my sorority and live life to the fullest as a college student. I love getting to visit the plasma centers and thank the donors for their dedication and also seeing the employees who work so hard for us. I am thankful for all of these people, they help me to have the best life!

My therapy gives me the energy to play basketball, take art classes, and go fishing. Plasma donors help me be a regular kid. Their donation makes a difference – to me.
