Need for blood continues during holiday season

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Nov. 15, 2012) — Every day, patients across the country rely on blood and platelets donated through the American Red Cross. While the need is ongoing, the supply isn’t — especially around the holidays, when regular donors travel and spend time with family and friends and may forget to schedule an appointment.

Blood and platelet donations help save the lives of people like Amy Jones, who was diagnosed with leukemia at 10 years old and underwent chemotherapy treatments every six weeks. Like many cancer patients, Jones received several transfusions. Jones’s leukemia went into remission after two and a half years of treatments, but she eventually relapsed, forcing her to endure more intense chemotherapy. After receiving more than 100 pints of donated blood and platelets, her cancer went into remission again. Now in her 30s, Jones has been cancer-free for almost 20 years and encourages others to donate.

The only way to provide lifesaving blood and platelets for patients in need is through the generosity of donors. Donors can help the Red Cross maintain a stable blood supply this holiday season by making an appointment to donate at redcrossblood.org or 1-800-RED CROSS.
