Every unit of donated blood can help save up to three lives. Each recipient of that blood donation has his or her own story. He or she could be an accident or trauma victim, cancer patient, a mother giving birth, a premature baby, a transplant recipient or surgical candidate. The impact of that unit of blood goes beyond that patient – it is multiplied by the impact it has on that person’s loved ones who are thankful for the unit that was donated.
