Importance of Blood Donations

Your Blood is needed more than you think. When you give blood you help save lives. Types O, B and rare blood types are often in high demand and the first to run out during a short-age. African Americans and Latin-American populations carry high percentages of both types and the common ABO blood type a rare blood protein found exclusively in the African American population. SICKLE CELL affects more than 70,000 people in the US, most of them African American. Transfusions from blood donors of the same ethnic heritage help sickle cells patients avoid complications. HELP SAVE LIVES BY DONATING BLOOD. The lives you can save may be family, friends, church member or a neighbor across the street or across the nation.
