Honoring CHOC’s longest-serving blood and platelet donor

Ron Shepherd understands the importance of blood and platelet donations. Although he’s never needed a transfusion himself nor has he met any of his beneficiaries, he’s become our most tenured donor. In the past 30 years, he has donated more than 225 units of whole blood and platelets.
