2013 Beaver Platelet Donor Recognition Dinner
Dozens of platelet donors at our Beaver, Pa., donation center were honored October 23 at our annual platelet donor recognition dinner, held at the Holiday Inn, Beaver Falls.
Special guests included Kristen Carfang, blood recipient, and her father, Paul. Kristen, a graduate of Greensburg Central Catholic High School and Clarion University of Pennsylvania, underwent surgery in October 2012 for a growth on her pituitary gland. Two weeks later, the growth was confirmed to be cancerous. Kristen received blood and platelet transfusions during treatment.
