Red Cross seeks additional blood donors this summer
While many volunteers responded to the emergency call for blood donations from the American Red Cross in July, donors of all blood types are still needed this summer.
Blood products are being distributed to hospitals almost as quickly as donations are coming in. Blood and platelets are needed for many reasons. Accident and burn victims, heart surgery patients and organ transplant recipients, as well as those receiving treatment for cancer or sickle cell disease, may depend on lifesaving transfusions. In fact, every two seconds a patient in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion.
The Red Cross, on behalf of the hospitals and patients it serves, appreciates all those who take the time to help save lives.
