Mexia High School to host community blood drive to save lives

With the new year comes a new calendar, new resolutions and new hope for health. The year also starts off with National Blood Donor Month – celebrated since 1970 when President Richard Nixon declared it a time to honor the contributions of volunteer blood donors throughout the country. When marking the 2019 calendar for holidays, birthdays and special events, consider marking the calendar for blood donation, too. Carter BloodCare says blood donors can return as often as every 56 days. Additionally, blood types that are Rh negative (A-, B-, O-, AB-) occur less frequently in the population, so blood centers can run low on these types.

Media Advisory: Community blood inventory reaches critical low

The blood supply in the north, central and east Texas regions has reached a two-year low. The blood available is less than one day’s supply, and willing blood donors are necessary to prevent disruptions in patient care at area hospitals. Carter BloodCare is appealing to the greater community’s altruism as blood donors are an essential part of the health care fabric in our communities. Without volunteer donors, there is no other way to provide blood or platelet transfusions for patients.
