New York Blood Center needs donors for summertime blood supply

Community Invited to Give Blood with Regional Mercedes Benz Dealerships June 14-15

"Each day blood and platelets are needed for accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients".

It is particularly unsafe to have a low blood supply in the summer, according to the release, since people are less likely to donate while out of school or on vacation. It helps patients suffering from life-threatening conditions to live longer, better quality lives, and supports complex medical and surgical procedures. Many countries still have a shortage of donors and thus World Blood Donor Day is vital to these countries to raise awareness of blood donation and thus increase supply to save as many lives as possible. This year it falls on the anniversary of the 2017 shooting at the congressional baseball practice.

"When not enough people donate blood, hospital shelves may be empty when a critical patient arrives", Mario Sedlock, director of donor recruitment of the Southern Red Cross Blood Services Region, said. "We have fantastic donors who come regularly to give blood".

Canadians are encouraged to remove As, Bs, and Os from their social media handles and posts, from blogs and websites, and in other creative ways to draw attention to the need for more blood donors. B Negative is one of the rarest blood types.

Canadian Blood Services manages the national supply of blood, blood products and stem cells, and related services for all the provinces and territories (excluding Quebec).

Kim invites Trump to visit Pyongyang as North hails 'radical switchover'
Graphologist Koo Bon-jin said Mr Kim's signature suggested an ambitious man who is "intuitive, rather than rational and logical". It added that North Korea and the United States should take legal, institutional steps to guarantee it.

It's easy to donate blood. According to the statistics, it has been noted that only 62 countries are getting sufficient blood supplies from the voluntary and unpaid blood donors whereas 40 countries are still dependent for the blood donations on the patient's family member or paid donors. One of those daughters lost her battle with the disease in December, and Johnson said blood transfusions helped all three maintain their quality of life during treatment.

In fact, the blood donor base is shrinking.

The Vincent Jones Memorial Blood Drive is Saturday, June 23, from 8:30 a.m.to 12:30 p.m.in the Eaton First Church of God gym, 601 East Lexington Road, Eaton.

McGuire noted the Red Cross suggests people should make sure they have a full stomach and aren't dehydrated if they plan on donating.
