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.
“Our son Gabriel (front, middle) was born with a rare form of anemia, and he needed blood and platelet transfusions from the time he was born until his bone marrow transplant 18 months later.
We are so grateful and know the meaning of ‘blood is life’ because Gabriel wouldn’t be here without these donations. My husband Aaron is a blood donor, and I share your posts each time I see them on Facebook to encourage others to donate.” ~ Lauren
