Urgent call for 35,000 people across Canada to donate blood by March 10
Somewhere in Canada, a patient needs a blood transfusion every 60 seconds
(OTTAWA) – When the call for help goes out to Canadians, they respond. Canadian Blood Services saw that well-known Canadian value come to life earlier this summer as it worked to rebuild what was then a precarious inventory of blood for Canadian patients. As the Labour Day long weekend approaches, Canadian Blood Services is counting on that generosity and is urging eligible Canadians to book appointments.
Patient care takes no summer vacation; the need for blood remains
(OTTAWA) – Canadian Blood Services is extending thanks to Canadian residents for the tremendous response to its urgent call for 60,000 donors by July 1. However, the need for blood remains.
The national blood inventory is improving but every minute of every day, a patient in Canada needs blood. Donors are needed to continue to answer the call for blood every day throughout the summer.
