Over the past three weeks, the Blood Center has been forced to cancel dozens of blood drives (68, and counting) leading to a loss of more than 2200 donations due to record cold tempatures, snow, and ice.
If you are able to safely travel to donate blood this week, please do. To find a donation location near you, call (800) 747-5401, visit www.bloodcenterimpact.org, or use the Blood Center’s IMPACT mobile app.
With another winter storm on the way to portions of our service region, we will continue to provide information on the impact of winter weather at www.bloodcenter.org/weather.
Kale was just five years old in 2015 when tumors were found in his kidneys and he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Burkitt’s Lymphoma. When he needed blood and platelet transfusions as part of his treatment, the blood products were there because of donors like you. Fast forward three years, and Kale is now a third grader who just celebrated two years cancer-free.
