Bobbi's story


Bobbi's life was saved through multiple blood transfusions.

Born weighing less than 2lbs, Bobbi McBurnie needed 11 blood transfusions over the first two years of her life. AgedĀ 14, she became the Scottish face of the #MissingType campaign, helping draw attention to the need for new blood donors in Scotland.

The International #MissingType campaign highlights the fact that across the world, without A, B and O blood donors, people like Bobbi would not be here today.
