It is better to give than receive. Join The ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc Kappa Nu Omega Chapter in our sleeves up virtual blood drive campaign in giving blood and platelets for breast cancer patients. The most common use of blood and platelet transfusions in cancer patients is to treat anemia. Anemia can be an effect of the cancer itself, or can be caused by different types of treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation.
The Red Cross has to collect 15,000 blood donations every day to have enough blood to help patients in 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. That’s a lot of patients in need and all of us, coming together, can help ensure patients receive life saving blood.
We are asking friends and family to pledge to give blood through the month of October. Together, we’ll track our pledges, cheer each other on, and, most importantly, provide a lifesaving gift for patients in need. To get started, make your pledge by clicking the red button above, and then visit redcrossblood.org to schedule your donation appointment. You can give at a locally hosted blood drive or at a permanent Red Cross blood donation center. When you donate, be sure to post on social media with the hashtag #SleevesUpwithKNOmega!! Please pledge to give blood today!
So SleevesUp and help us reach our goal. Make and keep an appointment to give blood to the American Red Cross.
