Blood Donations Urgently Needed
During this time of the coronavirus crisis, patients with cancer, those undergoing chemotherapy, trauma patients and others will continue to need blood transfusions. Efforts to contain the virus, such as social distancing, staying at home, business and school closures (all extremely critical) have had the unintended consequence of a dramatic decrease in blood donations. It is essential that individuals continue to donate in order to prevent a local and national blood shortage. Individuals can sign up to donate at Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin by dialing: 1 877 BE A HERO or going on our website at Versiti or Versiti Blood Donation Locations.
