Until blood is needed for themselves or for a loved one, most people do not think about the blood supply in our community. As a result, we want to raise awareness of the "why" behind our donors and the patients we serve.
Did you know? Your story has the power to inspire others to donate blood to ensure a more stable and adequate blood supply for our community. If more people donated, or if donors donated more frequently there would be less shortages in general.
Will you share your story to inspire others to donate?
Why do you donate blood or platelets? What motivates you to continue donating?
Your story might inspire someone to donate blood or platelets for the first time, or to donate more frequently.
Why was a blood or platelet transfusion needed as part of your care or treatment? What kind of an impact did the transfusion make for your treatment?
Our donors find it fulfilling to hear how blood donations impacted the lives of patients in need.
