Don't wait until disaster strikes. Give blood

By	Gary Mc Kinn

There are many in central IL who have helped give the gift of life, but it's coming at a time of year where more help is needed. "Many a time they will disappear into thin air, as an alternative to save life, blood will have to be bought out of the bank, which is risky due to lack of proper screening, as it is an emergency". Usually donations drop because donors are less available.

"We would also appeal to existing donors who maybe only donate once a year to make an extra donation over the winter period to help maintain the required blood supply for our hospitals".

"I know every blood comes from somebody and I wonder how and who helped me stand here today".

One Wagga man has been saving nearly 20 lives every year for ten years. The main goal of the event is to raise awareness about the need for safe blood and blood products.

One donor has been giving for a decade.

Professor Zaheer stressed the importance of promoting a voluntary blood donation culture in the country since reliance on voluntary and regular blood donors would improve the blood safety standards manifold.

Mlambo calls on all South Africans to donate blood.

She says CBS is trying to make donating easy.

"Imagine if every Australian did one good deed this June - from helping a neighbour, to volunteering or making a donation to charity".

Speaking during the event, Head of Haematology Unit, LUTH, Dr. Titilola Adeyemo appreciated Airtel's continued partnership with the institution in raising awareness about blood donation. There's a victor each month until the end of summer.

Mr Henley said he vowed to donate blood as soon as he reached the legal age after a blood transfusion saved his life when he was 14.

It's all in memory of our friends, Robert Reese and Dave Benton, who both died of cancer.

You can donate once every 56 days if you are eligible.
