Hermann Michael Vitalant Phoenix Symphony

Those who donate blood at Vitalant Nov. 16-30 will have the opportunity to hear the Phoenix Symphony. The drive is in honor of the late Hermann Michael.

Jaziel survived leukemia three times thanks to 134 blood donors.  He was just seven years old when he was first diagnosed. 

 “My childhood was interrupted by cancer,” reflected Jaziel.  “Having had cancer for six long, extremely emotional years, I can say I always knew I wasn’t alone thanks to my generous blood donors.”  

Now cancer-free, Jaziel is studying to become an oncology nurse so that he can use his experience to help other patients through their cancer treatments.
