Red Cross Blood Drive in Thorp Today

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013 -- 8:20 AM

-October is Liver Awareness Month, and the American Red Cross reminds eligible donors that organ transplant patients often rely on donated blood products.

Liver transplant patients may need 30 or more transfusions during the surgery.

Liver transplants are the second most common transplant, with more than 6,000 performed every year in the U.S. and more than 16,000 Americans are currently waiting for a liver transplant, according to the American Liver Foundation.

There is a blood drive today, October 1st, at the Thorp Fire and Ambulance District Station from 12pm-6pm.

The Red Cross has not issued an emergency need for blood; however, donations throughout the summer were down considerably. The Red Cross would like all eligible donors to come to the Thorp blood drive to begin October on a high note.

Feel free to contact us with questions and/or comments.
