Andrew Gordey


Representing Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and The Northwest Territories

Andrew is a devoted plasma donor, whose service to his country and passion for helping others is epitomized in a framed Canadian flag that hangs in the Edmonton collection site. He donated the flag, which flew over Canada House in Kabul, Afghanistan, after he returned home from his 2011 deployment, where he helped with rebuilding efforts. Andrew had the flag dedicated to Canadian Blood Services’ plasmapheresis program in honour of those who give support for the men and women of the Canadian Forces.

Throughout the implementation of changes to the donation processes, Andrew provides valuable feedback on how to better new systems. Andrew continues to serve in the Canadian Armed Forces, and enjoys sharing stories with other donors plus promoting donation.
