Canadian Blood Services is asking Carleton Place and area blood donors to roll up their sleeves on January 26th to help ensure patients’ needs are met following a busy holiday season. Donations tend to decrease during the holidays as regular blood donors often have seasonal commitments, travel plans or a change in their routine. Since blood products have a limited shelf life, the demand for blood never stops; cancer patients, accident victims, and people with blood disorders rely on blood transfusions every day. 77 blood donations are needed at the Carleton Place Donor Centre on January 26th to ensure local patients receive the blood they need.
Every minute of every day, a patient in Canada needs blood. More regular donors are needed to maintain a strong national inventory of blood and blood products to meet patients’ needs.
