You or someone you know will probably need a blood transfusion at some point in time. Currently, there is no substitute for blood. It must come from people like us, donating on a regular basis to create an ample blood supply. We can help ensure that blood will be abailable when needed by family members, friends, or even ourselves. Many of us know someone who has needed blood. Blood is transfused to a variety of hospital patients, including cancer patients, trauma victims, and burn patients. The Community Blood Center provides 100% of the blood used by patients in our region. Here at SMM we have the incredible opportunity to become lifesavers. The blood mobile will be at SMM Thursday, January 26, 2012 from 3-6pm. You may sign up by calling the Blood Bank at 1-800-280-4102.
