Julia Horninger, 20, of Brookville was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma on August 9, 2013. As a result of her condition, Julia must receive chemotherapy as an inpatient and is sometimes in the hospital for up to three weeks at a time. While Julia is in the hospital, her blood counts drop to severely low levels, causing her to feel incredibly fatigued and weak.

Because of this, Julia is an ideal recipient of blood. She says, “Receiving blood while in the hospital helps me to feel so much better. With low platelets I have a high bleeding risk, and with low hemoglobin I can get very dizzy, which puts me at risk for falling. So, by receiving blood it not only helps me feel better, it reduces my fall risk and helps me to be safe.”

Julia is extremely grateful to those who donate blood, “I would like to thank anyone who donates blood. As a blood recipient and fellow donor, I know that it really makes a difference in patients’ lives.”

For your chance to save a life, sign up to donate at the upcoming blood drive on January 9 at Margaret Mary Health.

For more information or to make an appointment, contact Mary Jo Nobbe at (812) 933.5274.

Julia Horninger, Brookville, is the daughter of Tom and Mary Horninger (MMH Home Care RN).
