Letter from a retired Boston-area laboratory technologist and former MABB board member:

14 April, 2014

As the first anniversary of the Marathon Bombing approaches, I want to thank all the Boston Blood Bankers for their heroic efforts last Patriots Day.  No one, other than fellow blood bankers will ever fathom how hard you worked with such flawless accuracy and speed.  I can only imagine the total volume of blood products that passed through the six trauma center ERs and ORs as well as the outlying hospitals that took other patients less critically injured.  I don't think any other city in the world could have treated as many critical victims without a fatality,  other than those at the scene.  We train many of the best and last year the Best of Boston and the New England region shined brighter than the beacon in Boston Light that illuminates the entrance to Boston Harbor.  God Speed.   Boston Strong!
