Due to low donations and increased patient need, we are urging all eligible volunteer donors, especially those with AB or O blood type, to donate now. Please contact the Blood Center to schedule a time to give at a donor center or mobile blood drive near you as soon as possible. Call (800) 747-5401, or schedule online at www.bloodcenterimpact.org or via our Blood Center Impact App. Thank you!
"My grandson Lee was born six weeks premature in 2014, and was diagnosed with a rare disease called IPEX (Immunodysregulation Polyendocinopathy Enteropathy X-Linked Chromosome) Syndrome at three months old. Doctors told us he wouldn’t survive without a bone marrow transplant. We were so fortunate that a 10/10 match was found immediately.Lee received blood and blood products before, during and after his bone marrow transplant. We celebrate with a blood drive on his birthday in June, and I make a point to always donate blood when I am able."-- Wendy, blood donor and grandmother
