Every two seconds, someone needs blood – from heart transplant and cancer patients to accident victims in crises. Memorial Blood Centers faces a demand of more than 2,700 units a week to meet the needs of more than 30 health care partners in the area. Making a blood donation is one way to give a potentially life-saving gift to friends, family and community. To donate, you must be 17 years or older, free of antibiotics for 24 hours and symptom-free for at least three days following a cold or flu.
