According to LifeShare Blood Centers, approximately 1 in 7 people who enter the hospital need blood. It is always needed in the treatment of accident victims, cancer patients, hemophiliacs and surgery patients.
By donating less than an hour of your time, you could give someone a lifetime of memories.
