Donors Needed Following Labor Day to Rebuild Blood Supply

Blood donors transform the lives patients like Valley 3-year-old Adelyn who received her 55th blood transfusion last week. She was born with Diamond Blackfan Anemia, a rare disorder that prevents her body from producing red blood cells. Every three to four weeks, she relies on the generosity of blood donors to keep her alive – a need that is expected to continue the rest of her life. “Adelyn has taught us the importance of donating blood,” says her mother Kami. “We are forever thankful to each and every blood donor.” 

Over the Labor Day holiday week, blood donations declined by about 25%, but the transfusion needs of hospital patients remained constant. You can help make tomorrows better for many people by donating to rebuild the blood supply now. When tragedy strikes, it is the blood on the shelves that saves lives. For your blood donation appointment, visit (enter city or zip code) or call 1-877-25-VITAL (1-877-258-4825).
