A handful of Pulse survivors have teamed up with One Blood to promote blood donations.
One Blood says it took 441 units to treat Pulse victims.
Jeff Xavier is one of them. He was shot four times and needed more than 40 units of blood.
“The people helped save us. These are random people, I don’t know who those 40 plus people are,” said Xavier. “And they’re all from different races, nationalities and backgrounds, and a little bit of each of them is the reason why I’m here speaking with you today.”
