What blood is—and why it matters
Every patient is different. Each disease calls for a unique treatment regimen. And the blood component needed to save or sustain the life of a patient with a specific condition also differs from all others. While patients undergoing treatment for leukemia require platelets to promote clotting, severe burn victims need plasma, and red blood cells can often mean the difference between life and death for premature babies.
1 hour of time = 1 pint of blood = 3 components = up to 3 lives saved
Blood is :
You or someone you know will need blood! If not personally in need, at some point we will all know a friend, neighbor, family member, or co-worker who needs a blood transfusion. In fact, 1 out of 3 people will need blood in their lifetime. From natural disasters to unforeseen catastrophes, emergency hospital procedures to life-long battles with chronic diseases such as sickle cell, the demand for blood is constant. The supply is not. And since there is no substitute, only volunteer blood donors can roll up their sleeves and save lives.
Our next blood drive is on Wednesday, September 25, from 3:30 – 6:30. We have a commitment to fill 32 time slots.
Please contact Darla or Ron Nemec at 952-949-2371 to sign up!!
We need you and your blood to reach our goal!!
