Thursday, May 2, 2019 @ 8:30 am - Sunday, May 19, 2019 @ 8:00 am MST
United Blood Services is now Vitalant (Vye-TAL-ent) – new name; same organization and lifesaving mission.
South/Central Arizona Calendar Request: Blood Donors Help Kids Like Hayley (May Public Blood Drives)
Cities: Ajo, Casa Grande, Florence & Tucson.
Since blood has a shelf life of 42 days, May donors will save lives through the Memorial Day holiday week, a time when blood supplies can decline by as much as 25%. Blood transfusions save teens like Hayley, who will celebrate her 19th birthday on May 31 thanks to 95 blood donors. She was born with Diamond Blackfan Anemia, a rare disease that prevented her body from producing red blood cells. She relied on the kindness of strangers to provide lifesaving blood transfusions every month until she was able to receive a bone marrow transplant. “Blood donors gave our daughter the chance to play, jump and laugh like other children,” said her mom, Melana. “They are true heroes.” To schedule an appointment to give blood, go to BloodHero.com or call 877-258-4825 (877-25-VITAL).
