The letters you see missing here may not seem like a big deal. But the letters A, B and O make up our main blood groups. And for a patient in the hospital needing blood, it’s everything.
Only 3 out of 100 Americans donate blood, yet every two seconds someone needs it. Fewer people are donating blood to help patients. You can change that by joining the international Missing Types movement and fill in the missing blood types.
If I could donate my blood again I would in a heart beat because it could save someone’s life and if you go in for an emergency surgery, you may or may not know you get blood from the blood bank because of the blood you may loose during surgery.
