May 10, 2012 - The recent loss of long-time blood donor Charles Chavanne leaves a void in LifeShare’s family. A dedicated and frequent blood donor most of his life, Charles became a platelet donor in 1989 and strived to give the maximum of 24 times a year. With a total of 482 donations, he frequently gave his time and his blood to save hundreds of lives.
We honor Charles Chavanne’s memory in both his friendship to LifeShare and his dedication to blood donation. Charles and his family went on to support blood donation even after losing his battle with cancer in April 2012. At the family’s request, memorials from friends, family and LifeShare employees were directed to LifeShare Blood Centers.
