Making a difference
Blood donations, also referred to as “whole blood donations,” are extremely important. There is no substitute for human blood.
Blood that is collected is used to help people of all ages. Typical recipients include cancer patients, open-heart surgery patients, mothers and babies during delivery, premature infants, and victims of accidents and traumas.
Donors are able to give blood every eight weeks.
