"Blood donors are a lifeline to our patients."
Those words from hospital laboratory manager Sharon Hosch summarize this video from Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center (MVRBC). Moving from blood donation to infectious disease testing, component production and product distribution, this 8-minute video provides an overview of MVRBC's daily operations. At the end of the piece, viewers will hear from a patient who survived a life-threatening health scare thanks, in part, to the volunteer donors who provided 26 units of blood she received during two emergency surgeries.
MVRBC relies on a steady rate of blood donation to meet the needs of hospitals and patients in communities throughout our region. The demand for blood is constant, but the rate of donation decreases during the summer months. Will you give?
