Patients who rely on blood and platelet transfusions need your help
08 July, 2017, 00:43
Bernadette Jay, external communications manager for the Red Cross Mid-Atlantic and Appalachian Blood Services Regions, said the more that blood and platelet donors help now, the more those donations will help in the case of an emergency later.
The Greater Idaho Chapter of the American Red Cross serves 1.4 million people in 39 Idaho counties, over 84,000 square miles. Over the past two months, there have been about 61,000 fewer donations than what is needed, the organization said.
"Every day, patients recovering from accidents or those receiving treatments for cancer or blood disorders rely on lifesaving blood products regardless of the season". Blood and platelets donated are being routinely sent to hospitals, the incoming donated blood and platelets are falling short of this supply.
The blood shortage is compounded around Independence Day due to many fewer blood drives, which are hosted by volunteer sponsors.
Nintendo Is Releasing Another Retro Console This Fall
The SNES mini doesn't have a confirmed United Kingdom price yet but will cost $79 in America when it's released on September 29 . The company continued by saying, "At this time, we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year".
In a recent survey of Red Cross blood donors, more than 73 percent indicated vacation plans this summer, many of them occurring the weeks before and after the Fourth of July, the release states. This has caused a significant draw down of the Red Cross blood supply.
Twin Counties residents have plenty of chances to donate blood and platelets throughout July. One of the reasons people admit to never giving blood is their fear of needles - a fear that many Red Cross donors have overcome. "Every day, blood and platelet donors can help save lives, and right now these heroes are needed to give as soon as possible". Only 38% of the USA population can donate blood and only 10% choose to do so. Those who are 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health are eligible to donate.
Donors also donate less often in the summer because of vacations and summer activities.
Make an appointment to give blood or platelets by downloading the free Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
