November Blood Donors Help Kids
October 26, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0
Did you know . . . It takes 500 donors of all blood types to maintain Arizona’s blood supply for just one day. Fall blood donors help kids like Madison, who is alive today because of more than 148 blood donors. The Arizona 7-year-old was born with Diamond Blackfan Anemia, a rare disease that prevents her body from producing red blood cells. She relies on the kindness of strangers to provide lifesaving blood transfusions about every three weeks at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. “Blood donors deserve medals for their lifesaving actions,” said her mom, Aimee. “I am so thankful for people who donate regularly because they understand the need for transfusions is constant.” To make an appointment to Find the Hero in You, call 1-877-UBS-HERO (1-877-827-4376) or visit www.BloodHero.com (enter your city or zip code).
All blood types are needed, however, Type O-negative is always in greatest demand.
