The Quintessa® Annual Blood Drive to Save Lives is an event dedicated to bringing together individuals in our community to give back to a cause that has helped so many of us in both direct and indirect ways. Everyone is welcome to attend and donate blood. Donors will receive a $75 voucher credit to use toward services at any of Quintessa Aesthetic Center’s three convenient locations.
The Blood Drive to Save Lives was inspired by one of our very own team members who’s father was found to have a large cancerous tumor on his kidney approximately the size of a football. Surgery was scheduled and on January 13th, 2016 he underwent a radical nephrectomy. While the removal of the tumor and kidney was successful, he had severe post-op internal bleeding that resulted in a cardiac arrest. After being revived, he had been placed on a massive blood transfusion protocol. Soon thereafter, he underwent an emergency surgery to stop the active bleeding. He received over 30 blood products within 3 days. Those extremely valuable blood products that others had so graciously donated not only gave Jeff a second chance at life, but allowed him to continue to spend his “bonus” time with family and friends feeling as best as he could thanks to continued transfusions.
EACH DONOR WILL RECEIVE A $75 CREDIT TO USE TOWARD ANY SERVICE AT QUINTESSA AESTHETIC CENTERS.*
