How It Helps

When you're a blood donor, you're a lifesaver.

As medical care advances, more of today's treatments rely upon the availability of blood. For medical emergencies, ongoing treatments, and surgeries alike, blood is the staple upon which a patient's life depends.

Yet there is no substitute for human blood. Our only hope is the blood received through volunteer donations from people like you.

Did you know seven percent of the population provides 100 percent of the blood that is used? In addition, it is estimated that annually, more than four million people have a second chance at life because of blood transfusions made possible by volunteer blood donors!

Be the type that gives. Donate blood.
