Today, February 14th, is not only Valentine's Day, but it is also National Donor Day! National Donor Day is the day dedicated to focusing on all forms of donation - organ, eye, tissue, blood, platelets and marrow - by participating in blood/marrow drives or donor registration events. It is also a day to recognize our loved ones who have given the gift of donation, have received a donation, are currently waiting or did not receive an organ in time. Every 10 minutes another person is added to the National Waiting List which is currently over 119,000. But, as a donor you have the power to save 8 lives and improve the life of 75 more! So take the time today to go to a local blood drive or consider becoming a registered donor. For more information on donation in our area click here.
