Kalle Kask, a driver and paramedic, has been a donor for some time, but at one point Blood Centre employees asked him if he wouldn’t want to be a plasma donor. Kalle was up for it. “Why not? At some point you realize there are things that have to be done. Give something back to society.”
“And the staff they have at the Blood Centre is of course very helpful and nice,” he adds. For the past few years, Kalle has been in charge of administrative affairs related to the Medical Centre’s ambulance service, but he also drives on actual calls doing “real paramedic work.”
Besides saving lives; he has time for amateur sports. Apheresis donations have not kept him from taking part in competitive cycling the next day. “I have always felt great and it hasn’t affected my condition, rather, it’s benefited me a bit,” he says cheerfully.
