Every blood type is needed, particularly type O, as well as platelet donations. Donors can help as many as three different people with just one donation. Individuals who may rely on blood products include trauma victims, cancer patients, mothers giving birth and premature babies.
Blood donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good general health.
