Autologous Blood Donation to be Featured by Blood Bank
McLeod syndrome (MLS) patients have the very rare KX- blood type. In August, MLS patient Mark Williford of Melbourne, Florida traveled to Orlando to make an autologous donation in the event he should need blood some day. Mark will continue donating so that others may benefit. Mark himself is the beneficiary of donations from other generous MLS patients, having needed two units in 2015.
While at the blood center, Mark was interviewed by the OneBlood media team. OneBlood is hoping to use this opportunity to promote donations from people with rare blood types.
