LifeShare Blood Center Announces 1st Buddy Russ Blood Drive
On Thursday, LifeShare Blood Center and our friend Johnny Jimenez announced that they have been working on a special project and have officially found a date to host the 1st ever Buddy Russ Blood Drive in Lake Charles.
During Buddy Russ's fight, he depended on blood donors around the state and the world to give blood.
You may ask, why should I give blood? Well, that answer is simple, to help save a life. About 328 million people currently live in the U.S. Each year, approximately 6.8 million people in the U.S. donate blood. Annually, this adds up to about 13.6 million units of whole blood collected for donation in the U.S. The Red Cross provides about 40% of our nation’s blood and blood cell components to donors. Your blood donations are used for patients in need of surgery, cancer treatment, and transfusions for blood loss from traumatic injuries. Want to know more about the blood supply in the U.S.?
