Please join us for a blood drive on Saturday May 16 in honor of Team Taylor. Taylor has a very rare disease called Histiocytosis. She has been undergoing chemotherapy since 2010 to treat the disease and because of the side effects of the chemo her blood counts sometimes drop which can cause her to require a blood transfusion. We know the importance of having people donate blood, plasma and platelets.
There are so many people that need these blood products each day. As per the New York Blood Center's website "current processing techniques allow a single blood donation, when separated into components, to help save at least three lives." When you donate blood you help patients that are undergoing cancer treatments, traumatic accidents, burn victims, babies and mothers delivering babies, patients undergoing surgery and many more people.
As per the New York Blood Center website "Plasma contains vital proteins, nutrients, and clotting factors that help prevent and stop bleeding. Donated plasma aids patients with blood diseases as well as those with low platelet count or non-functioning platelets at high risk of bleeding, such as chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant patients. Your platelet donations play an essential role in ensuring a patient’s blood can clot when needed. Platelets also contain growth factors that help repair damaged body tissue."
Please come down and make a difference in someone's life. Your donation can literally save someone's life.
