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.
