You’re An Official MKBC Blood Donor
And We Couldn’t Be More Proud Of You!
We’re so excited to welcome you, an Official First Time Miller-Keystone Blood Center Blood Donor. And more importantly, we want to thank you for being a courageous life-saver.
When you give a pint, you give more than just blood — you give the gift of life.
Your simple blood donation will save up to 3 lives. That means a cancer patient will continue the fight, a trauma victim will survive and a premature baby will grow and thrive — and all because of you! Be sure to schedule your next donation and become an every-time blood donor. While you’re at it, bring a friend and welcome them as an official MKBC donor today!
Did You Know…
Where you give blood makes a difference. The blood you donate here, stays here. That blood is sent to our 29 hospitals right here in our region. That means your blood could save the life of your family member, friend or neighbor. 450 donors are needed every day to maintain our community blood supply. Our only source of blood is from donors like you. When people stop donating, our blood supply can become depleted. Every 2 seconds, someone in the US requires a blood transfusion; and yet only 5% of people donate blood. The blood you donate today may very well be the blood you need tomorrow. If every blood donor donated at least 3 times a year, there would never be a blood shortage. Statistics show that 25% or more of us will require blood at least once in our lifetime.
How Often You Can Donate Depends…
You’re eligible to give Whole Blood every 56 days, that’s up to six times per year. Platelet donors are eligible to donate every two weeks, up to 24 times per year.
If you become a Plasma donor you can donate Plasma every four weeks. You’re eligible to donate Automated Red Cells every 112 days.
