The need for blood is constant, in fact, every two seconds someone in America needs blood. There is no alternative to blood transfusions for accident victims, women giving birth, cancer patients, people undergoing surgery, and children with blood disorders. The chances are high that you will need a blood transfusion in your lifetime.

Blood is the gift of life.
