Platelet, blood donors needed

UB faculty and staff can help overcome a critical blood shortage due to the recent severe winter weather by taking part in Red Cross blood drives being held this month on the North and South campuses.

Severe winter weather has had a tremendous impact on blood donations already this year.

He also appeared on " My Mother the Car ", " Accidental Family ", "Headmaster", and "13 Queen Boulevard". Nelson released a statement to Eyewitness News, saying he is incredibly sad to hear of his passing.

Because of the loss of donors, the Red Cross has seen more than 28,000 fewer donations over the last two months, and is in urgent need of blood and blood-platelet donations. This network works in tandem, moving lifesaving donations throughout the system-once local patient needs are met-to help ensure blood is available when and where it's needed most.

A "perfect storm" of sorts has put a major crimp in the blood supply, both across the country and right here in Minnesota. "The Red Cross is doing everything we can to ensure blood products are available for hospital patients during these hard winter months, but we need help from our regular donors - as well as those who are willing to donate for the first time - to give as soon as possible". RapidPass lets donors complete the pre-donation reading and answer the health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, by visiting redcrossblood.org/rapidpass from the convenience of a mobile device or computer, or through the Blood Donor App. She says blood is a perishable product, and you can donate every 56 days. Officials say it is especially necessary in emergencies when a blood type isn't known. Any healthy person 17 or older (or 16 with parental consent) may be eligible to donate, although there are height and weight restrictions for people 16 to 18 years old.
