We Want Your Blood—Local Chiropractor Dr. Josh Rowell and Chicago Spine and Joint Care Are Sponsoring a Blood Drive at Their Downtown Office Location
Date:10/25/2013

d Blood Centers is an independent, not-for-profit organization serving 49 hospitals in a 12 county area, including Kane, McHenry, DeKalb, Will, DuPage, Cook, Grundy, Kendall, Lee, Ogle and LaSalle counties in Illinois, and Lake county in Indiana. The Centers work toward a goal of collecting more than 200,000 units of blood each year.

Giving blood is important. According to the American Red Cross, 1 pint of blood can save up to 3 lives. Someone needs a blood transfusion every 2 seconds. Five million patients in the US need blood every year. Less than 38 percent of the population is eligible to give blood. Blood can’t be manufactured; it can only come from volunteer donors. Platelets (which are critical for cancer patients) have a shelf life of only 5 days. "I am thankful for everyone who gives blood," said Dr. Rowell. "I know how important our blood reserve is from personal experience in my family."

Giving blood is safe. People who have questions about giving blood should visit http://www.heartlandbc.org/edu_facts.html. The American Red Cross also has great resources on its website, http://www.redcrossblood.org/

Dr. Rowell said, "Our office’s downtown Chicago location is a big part of what makes it so convenient for our patients to come in and see us during the day. Hopefully, it will help to make this blood drive successful too." Although appointments are preferred, walk-ins are also welcome. Donors will need to bring a photo ID and should remember to eat a good meal and drink plenty of water beforehand. Every donor will also receive a free t-shirt.

Donors can schedule an appointment at the front desk of Chicago Spine and Joint Care, by sending an email directly to Dr. Rowell at chicagospinecare(at)gmail(do
