Will you donate today?. Thank you for making 2015 the best year ever for someone and you.
Blood donations help millions of patients in need. To make the journey from “arm to arm,” every unit goes through a series of steps and tests to ensure that it is as safe as can be.
In the United States, approximately 41,000 units of blood are needed every day. The average transfusion requires around three pints of blood, but a person in a car accident may need as many as 100 pints of blood.
Blood Type O is the most requested type. People who have O-negative blood are considered to be universal donors; their blood can be used for people with any blood type.
You could help save more than one life with just one donation.
Lets me help you get ready for your donation:
