Did you know that the US is experiencing a nation-wide blood shortage?
Every day, blood donors help patients of all ages: accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. And every blood donation can help save or improve the lives of at least three people.
This holiday season, join us in making difference to someone’s life by making a blood donation!
