In August 2021, at just a month shy of 4-years old, Olivia was diagnosed with Leukemia (ALL). Since then, she has been fighting to keep cancer out of her blood and has received 20 blood transfusions to save her life. Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. But for the past four years, new Red Cross blood donors have declined by about 80,000 each year. Help us reach our goal and get blood back on the shelves so patients like Olivia can receive the lifesaving care they need.
We work together every day to do important work. But today, we want to accomplish something even more meaningful. 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.
So SleevesUp and help us reach our goal. Make and keep an appointment to give blood to the American Red Cross.
