Winter weather has caused hundreds of lost donations over the weekend. Please give as soon as able. All types are needed, especially universal donors. For those eligible to donate, please find a Donor Center or mobile blood drive near you at www.bloodcenterimpact.org or by calling (800) 747-5401.
“I give to help others in need. This really hit home a few months ago, when my 18-year-old daughter Kerri was diagnosed with leukemia. She needs both platelets and whole blood transfusions. Being a donor has taken on a whole new meaning for me and my family. We are so grateful for the donors and the Blood Center staff who are helping my daughter and countless others who depend on these lifesaving products. This is our family on November 1, coming home after Kerri spent five weeks in the hospital.”-- Brad Duzan, 13 gallon blood donor
