Wisconsin in need of blood donations

By Portage County Business Council

ason Pansier looks at donating blood like giving a Christmas gift to someone in need.

When a 40,000 pound tractor rolled over on top of Pansier during a July farming accident, he lost one of his legs and faced losing his life. But about 300 units of donated blood helped him survive.

“Thank God that the people were able to donate blood to help me,” said the Ledgeview farmer.
