The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore Discusses the Emergency Need for Blood Donations
While thousands of people from across the country have responded to the emergency request for blood and platelet donations issued by the Red Cross last month, a critical blood shortage remains. All eligible donors are encouraged to make and keep blood and platelet donation appointments to help ensure blood is available throughout the rest of the summer to meet patient needs. Trauma victims, surgery patients, those with cancer and many others count on lifesaving blood donations every day. Give now. Your donation is critical.
