Flick Friday: From Doctor to Patient

As a pediatric anesthesiologist, Dr. Dick Marnach has seen blood save lives. He has traveled the world providing free health care to the underprivileged and at times transfused his own blood in to these patients. In these deprived countries, he has also experienced the heartbreak of there not being enough blood available.

As a cancer patient, Dr. Marnach has experienced the “profound” difference a blood transfusion can have on the body. Blood donations have helped make his treatment possible, have restored his quality of life when his body is drained by chemotherapy, and have given him moments with his family that otherwise would not have been possible.
