Angie is a wife and mother of four children, and her days are extremely full. She donates plasma because it is flexible, like a part-time job. The money she makes through plasma donations covers her family’s travel, date nights, and a variety of other “needs and wants”. Donating lets Angie contribute to her family’s budget while still focusing on her children.
Angie likes the atmosphere of Octapharma Plasma because she gets to visit with employees as well as take “personal time”. Donating gives her time to check emails, read, and enjoy a peaceful respite from an otherwise busy day. She tells her friends and family: “Don’t be afraid to donate, even if you’re nervous around needles. The staff care and the donating process is so smooth, I don’t even realise I’m doing it half the time. It’s just not that big a deal.”
Like many plasma donors, Angie’s life has been personally impacted by plasma donations. She is Rh negative and received treatment with each of her pregnancies, and her cousin receives plasma-derived medicines for a lung disease. Knowing real patients makes donating plasma extremely meaningful for Angie.
