Westbrookâ€˜s Susanne Maurer has become the first Towoomba woman to reach a milestone of 400 blood donations when she made her latest donation on Wednesday, 22nd March, 2017. Mrs Maurer is now one of only 7 Queensland women to reach 400 donations,Â having helped saved the lives of up to 1,200 Australians along the way.
Susanne (Sue) donates her O blood type at Toowoomba Blood Donor Centre fortnightly, a common blood type, yet one in high demand from hospitals.
After her donation, a special presentation was made to Mrs Maurer to honour the occasion.
If you would like to roll up your sleeves and help a fellow Queenslander, make an appointment to donate blood by calling 13 14 95, or visit donateblood.com.au for more information.
