blood and help save lives
PEORIA — Like a hospital emergency
room, the American Red Cross must be prepared to provide blood for
patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year. It's
the blood already on the shelves and readily available that can be
lifesaving for people like Chris Salinas
Salinas was a horse trainer who was seriously injured in an accident
when a horse pinned him to the pavement. He and his family said they
credit the multiple blood transfusions he received with helping him
Type O-negative blood is especially
needed right now. O-negative is the universal blood type and can
potentially be transfused to patients with any type.
To help ensure the shelves are
stocked for patients in need, the Red Cross has scheduled two
upcoming blood donation opportunities in Logan County:
Feb. 19, noon-5 p.m., at the
Lincoln Park District sports complex, 1400 Primm Road in
9 a.m.-1 p.m., at Hartsburg-Emden Jr.-Sr. High School, 400 W.
Front St. in Hartsburg
How to donate blood
To make an appointment to donate
blood, or for more information, call 1-800-RED CROSS
