American Red Cross Blood Drives in Your Area

Grand Haven, MI - As fall gets into full swing, the American Red Cross is encouraging all eligible donors to fall into the spirit of giving, by rolling up their sleeves and donating blood.

Every day, hospital patients need blood for the treatment of serious diseases and for emergency care related to accidents or trauma. Accident victims may need up to 100 units of blood.  Those undergoing liver transplants need approximately 20 units of blood.  As part of cancer or leukemia treatment, a patient will need 6-8 units of blood daily for two to four weeks. Blood donations can make the difference between life and death for a child or adult in your community.

“It’s very easy to make a positive difference in someone’s life.  Donate blood,” said Sharon Jaksa, CEO for the Great Lakes Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross.  “You never know who will need blood.  It could be a friend, a family member or even you.”
