Blood center needs community support
The Central Illinois Community Blood
Center provides all of the blood and blood products for 12 area
hospitals, including all of the hospitals in Lincoln, Hopedale,
Springfield, Taylorville, Jacksonville, Pittsfield, Carlinville,
Carrollton, Hillsboro and Pana. CICBC is a community-based blood
center whose mission is to provide a safe and adequate blood supply
for patients in local hospitals. No other organization provides
blood in these hospitals.
At this time, blood
centers across the nation are experiencing severe blood shortages
due to summer heat, vacations and new FDA deferrals. CICBC must have
the support of healthy community members in order to save the lives
of your friends, neighbors and family members. After local needs are
met, blood is shared throughout the United States through a
Every patient deserves to feel
confident that the blood he or she needs is safe and available. A continued
adequate local blood supply depends on community support.
There is a real need for O
negative, A negative and B negative blood. The area center will be supplying blood
for surgeries involving two open hearts and an aortic aneurysm, all using O negative.
There has been an unusually high usage of the negative types this past week and
concerns are high for this weekend.
There will be an opportunity for
community members to help replenish the local blood supply and support their
local first responders on July 16 at Abraham Lincoln
Memorial Hospital from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., sponsored by the hospital auxiliary.
Three drives are scheduled in
August: Aug 7, 19 and 30. Times and locations will be announced.
Please remember that the patients
you are helping are your friends, neighbors and family members.
