Blood drives available

Jamie Sullivan, daughter-in-law of Nancy Snider, donates blood as part of the Nancy Snider Memorial Challenge Hammond vs. Hobart blood drive at Hobart High School.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – the perfect time to give blood to support cancer patients and others.

Cancer patients may need red blood cell or platelet transfusions during chemotherapy, surgery or treatment for complications.

Donors of all blood types are needed to help ensure a sufficient supply for patients this fall, especially after Hurricane Florence and subsequent flooding forced the cancellation of more than 6,000 blood and platelet donations last month.

Appointments can be made by using the Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
