Donate Blood, Save a Life

Ariel Fishman Thanks Blood Donors who Saved his Life

After losing both of his legs in a taxi accident nearly one year ago, Dr. Ariel Fishman, needed multiple transfusions totaling 70 units of blood.

“If 70 different people hadn’t taken the one hour of their time to go to New York Blood Center and give blood, life would be very different for my children,” said Fishman, who serves as director of institutional research at Yeshiva University and assistant professor of management at the Sy Syms School of Business. “I don’t know who those people are but they gave blood and I am alive.”

In the video below, Fishman thanks blood donors everywhere.
