At a time when donations are typically low, blood centers across the country recognize January as National Blood Donor Month.
According to America’s Blood Centers, 4.5 million Americans will need a blood transfusion each year. Only 37 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood, but less than 10% do annually.
We are encouraging area residents to roll up their sleeves in January to ensure that local patients get the life-saving blood transfusions they need. Call Kristen Fox at (931) 728-6354 to set up an appointment!
