  • Bathurst Blood Donation Event to honor Baby Mavrik September 23, 2019  16:30 pm - 20:30 pm KC Irving Centre (Paul Ouellette Room) 14 Sean Courtier Ave., Bathurst, NB

    Bathurst blood donation event to honour baby Mavrik, September 23, 24, 25

    WHAT: Mavrik Hampe began showing signs of his heart-breaking illness at just six months old. He was diagnosed with X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA), a rare disorder that affects the body's ability to fight infection. Mavrik's lifesaving treatment came from thousands of generous blood and plasma donors. Human Immune Globulin (IVIG), a plasma derived treatment, made the lifesaving difference for Mavrik.

    IVIG is extracted from thousands of donors' plasma, and in doing so, gives him the immune system he otherwise would never have. It provides him with immunoglobulin that will fight for him. It provides him with immunity from dangerous diseases.

    Without this treatment, the longevity of a child with Agammaglobulinemia ranges from 8 to 17 years with causes of death ranging from bacterial meningitis, to chronic pulmonary disease from repeated lung infections, to organ failures.

    “This has opened our eyes to the importance of blood donations,” says Diane Hampe, Mavrik’s mother. “Our son and so many other children and adults depend on the public's selfless blood donations, so they can lead a long and healthy life. I am forever grateful to those who repeatedly take time out of their day to help those that they don't even know. I just want them to know that they truly are making a huge, life impacting difference.”
