April is National Donate Life Month, making it a great time to continue donating blood, or making your very first blood donation.
“Nearly five million people need blood transfusions each year,” said Geoff Kaufmann CEO of the local Red Cross North Central Blood Services Region. “Giving blood during National Donate Life Month is an easy way to help ensure blood is available for these patients in need.”
Whether you give blood at a community blood drive or at a donation center, you play a critical role in modern healthcare. Blood transfusions are needed for the treatment of many diseases and conditions, and for surgeries. The stability of our nation’s blood supply is in the hands of healthy, volunteer blood donors who give generously or others in need.
This April, give the gift of life by donating blood in honor of National Donate Life Month, and join a family of blood donors across the nation. You could change a life, starting with your own.
