Donors Make June Second-Highest Month for Collections
Thanks to all who donated blood throughout the month, June 2012 was Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center's second-highest month ever for collections, yielding 29,218 units to help save patients' lives. Only November 2009 saw higher collections.
This represents more than 87,000 lives that could be saved, including trauma and surgery patients, cancer patients, individuals with anemia, premature babies and more. Every blood donation helps save as many as three lives.
On behalf of all the patients in our community who have received blood, thank you for continuing your commitment this summer!
