Blood donations save lives

By Treasure Ransom, @transom

Every six minutes, a patient at Mayo Clinic needs a transfusion of blood or blood products. A simple blood donation can save the life of a child with leukemia, restore the strength of a cancer patient or provide a critical transfusion to an accident victim. There is no substitute for this life-saving gift, so our patients rely upon the caring spirit of blood donors like you. Please share this idea with friends, co-workers and family members and encourage them to join the team and donate blood today. To make your donation appointment or for more information, call (507) 284-4475.

Email: donateblood@mayo.edu or visit our website for more information and the hours and locations where you can donate.
