Event Description

Pregnant with her fourth child, Heather Bennett of Greensburg, underwent a C-section on Oct. 16, 2015. Having had a healthy, full-term pregnancy, the procedure was textbook, or so it seemed. Soon after her son, Luke, was born, she began bleeding excessively. Heather suffered from DIC, or Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation, a clotting disorder which can be triggered by trauma or surgery. She was air cared to UC Health where she received 41 total units of blood.

“Needless to say, if I didn’t receive blood, I wouldn’t be here,” said Heather. “You never know what the next second of your life is going to bring. If people weren’t willing to donate, I wouldn’t be here to celebrate my kids’ birthdays or any other special milestones.”
