Today is the day.
I make an appointment to give blood every few months. It takes about an hour of my time and it could be a life-changing donation. Every two seconds someone needs blood.
Blood and blood products are a critical part of everyday medical care including major surgeries, medical procedures, cancer treatments and managing diseases and disorders.
Blood donors form a vital link in Canada’s lifeline.
Nearly half of all North Americans are eligible to donate blood, but only 1 in 60 Canadians take the time.
There are blood donation centres right across Canada..
People all across this country need blood. It’s in you to give.
Pencil it into your schedule.
