Blood is needed for a wide variety of reasons--for babies, leukemia patients, burn victims, emergency surgeries, organ transplants, trauma patients and the list goes on. The only source for this blood is the volunteer donor.

All healthy adults are encouraged to donate blood. Volunteers may donate blood typically every eight weeks.

With all the wonderful advances in modern medicine, there still is NO substitute for human blood. The blood that helps patients comes only from those who volunteer to help others by donating their life-saving blood.
