My First Time Donating Blood, But Not The Last!

Keeping on track with our Monthly Charity Events, April was the month we decided to give blood. 

This was the first time I have ever given blood and I felt very good about doing it! I had been wanting to for several years. All in all it was a very easy process ... the nurses were great and it only took 6min to drain 2lbs 488ml of blood which is taken to be split into its 3 parts and hopefully save a life or two!!

Who Needs Blood?

Approximately every minute of every day, someone in Canada needs blood. In fact, according to a recent poll, 52 per cent of Canadians say they, or a family member, have needed blood or blood products for surgery or for medical treatment.

The good news is that one blood donation - in just one hour - can save a life.

Procedures. Units Needed.
