Red Cross Blood Drive—Friday, Feb 21—1-6 pm

Please plan to donate if you are able. www.redcrossblood.org. Speed your wait time by signing up online with the rapidpass.

Patients fighting cancer use nearly one quarter of the nation’s blood supply - more than patients fighting any other disease. And, there simply aren’t enough people donating regularly to meet the ongoing need.
According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 3 people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Many of these people, especially those undergoing chemotherapy, will likely have a need for blood.
In fact, five units of blood are needed every minute to help someone going through cancer treatment. Yet only 3% of people in the United States give blood. We need more people to donate regularly to help meet the need.
