Our family has benefitted immensely this year by blood donations. An aunt needs blood from time to time. A sister-in-law was struck by a car and suffered extensive injuries. My grandson was severely injured in a farming accident. Without receiving blood they well may not be alive today.
One blood donation can help save up to three lives. That means a lot to patients in need, but it took on a new meaning recently.
Without volunteer blood donors, our story might have had a different ending. Help me reach my goal and ensure that patients receive the life saving blood they need. Make and keep an appointment to give blood to the American Red Cross.
What you donate today won’t be “on the shelf” for a couple weeks. We never know what tomorrow may bring. The life you help save may be someone you love.
