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.
Medical conditions and emergencies that require blood don’t stop for the holidays. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, more than 1 million units of blood and platelets will be transfused to patients in the United States. Donations of all blood types are urgently needed to ensure lifesaving treatments remain available for patients this holiday season. Blood and platelets are needed for accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or sickle cell disease.
Be the lifeline patients need.
