April 4, 2008, Newsletter Issue #108: Donating Blood and Platelets

Tip of the Week

A safe and secure blood supply is critical to public health. According to the American Red Cross, someone in America needs a blood transfusion every two seconds. Cancer patients, accident victims, premature infants, and people with chronic diseases are some common recipients of donated blood.

Regular donations of blood are essential to ensure that all needs are met, all of the time. Because whole blood has a shelf life of only 42 days, it is important to be a regular and frequent donor. Giving blood doesn't take much time, and each donation has the power to save as many as three lives. Visit www.givelife.org to make an appointment to donate blood today.
