Blood Donors Are Heroes, Too
Date:5/5/2009

Give the gift of life, in honor of those who keep us healthy and safe

NEW YORK, May 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New York Blood Center (NYBC) and its regions call upon the community to please donate blood during the month of May, in recognition of those who serve to protect our health and safety. Now is the time to donate blood, to help maintain your community blood supply during the summer months.

May marks the start of National Family Month, the length of time between Mother's Day in May and Father's Day in June. Other May observances include National Hospital and Healthcare Week from May 10-16, National Emergency Medical Services Week from May 17-23, Fleet Week from May 20-27 in New York City honoring thousands of servicemen and women from the U.S. Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard; and Memorial Day weekend, honoring those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country and freedom.

Nearly everyone knows someone who works in healthcare, someone who serves in the military, or maybe an officer, firefighter, or first responder. Or, maybe you know someone whose life was saved by these individuals. Please donate blood this month, in honor of those who respond to the call of duty and give of themselves to help others. A single blood donation can help save the lives of three people.

Every two seconds, someone needs blood, and one out of three people will need a life-saving blood transfusion in his or her lifetime. To meet local needs, New York Blood Center requires 2,000 blood donations each day.

People can give blood every 56 days. New York Blood Center (NYBC) and its regions thank every individual blood donor and the wide variety of organizations that sponsor blood drives throughout the summer months.

Any company, community organization, place of worship, or individual may host a blood drive. Blood donors receive free mini-m
