In addition, did you know?

 

  • On average, approximately 600 people need to give blood or platelets daily in the Tennessee Valley Blood Services Region to meet hospital demand.

 

  • Blood can be safely donated every 56 days. Platelets can be given every seven days – up to 24 times a year.

 

  • The Red Cross encourages people who are in good health to donate so that hospital patients have the blood and platelets they need to make a full recovery. Blood is needed to help treat a variety of patients including accident victims and individuals undergoing surgery and cancer treatment.
