How Donating Blood Helps
By being prepared you could potentially save a life, but it is just as important to be there after the initial injury is under control. Often the most critical element of a medical emergency is the availability of blood. A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 units of blood which shows just how important every single blood donation is.
There have been many groundbreaking discoveries in medicine over the years, but there’s still no substitute for blood. Blood can’t be manufactured and can only come from donors like you. Whether through participating in the (FAST™) training program or by giving blood, your selfless choice to help others could be the very thing that saves someone’s life.
