Blood donations urgently needed this summer


This summer, almost 30,000 appointments are needed each week to ensure patients like Hunter receive the blood they need. Right now the Canadian Blood Services' inventory levels are the lowest they have been in five years; they are asking all of their partner organizations to rally together and make a difference in the coming weeks.

At just six weeks old Hunter received an emergency blood transfusion and was diagnosed with Diamond Blackfan Anemia. Hunter is now 10 years old. 170 transfusions later (and counting) Hunter can look forward to a summer full of adventure because he can count on the next blood donation to get him there.
