Blood Donation

There is no substitute for blood. One pint of blood can save several lives. Red blood cells carry oxygen to the body’s organs and tissues. Platelets promote blood clotting. Cancer, transplant, trauma, and surgery patients are a few reasons why blood donation is important and it does save lives. To learn more about blood donation contact one of the following:
