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.
Trevor had a genetic condition called DADA2 that left him without much of an immune system. Over the years, he received 588 blood products: 55 units of blood, 328 units of plasma, 46 units of granulocytes, and 159 units of platelets.It's hard to put into words how much of an impact Trevor made in the sixteen and a half years he was here. He had the best friends and the best family. He had the support of the entire Geneseo community. The only thing he didn't have was enough time.
On May 16, 2018, Trev's family celebrated his 17th birthday with a blood drive. They are determined to collect 588 units in 2018, as a way to pay it forward. You can help, by giving code 3440 when you donate blood in Trevor's honor.
