Paris volunteer blood donors give hope to local patients

There is no substitute for human blood. And when a patient’s life is on the line, blood must be at the ready with only a moment’s notice. The volume of blood required to supply regional medical facilities is great enough that Carter BloodCare requests at least 1,000 volunteers to show up and give blood every day. There are hundreds of patients waiting for lifesaving blood donations. Many of their treatments, such as chemotherapy, would not happen without blood or platelets waiting on the shelves.

Turn Tyler Pink: firefighters invite locals to give red, for pink T-shirts Anniversary event includes blood drive, food, fun, cancer awareness

A common misunderstanding is that accident victims are the patients who require the most blood for transfusions. Actually, people who receive the most blood include those: being treated for cancer, undergoing organ and marrow transplants, undergoing cardiovascular surgeries, and being treated for inherited blood disorders, like sickle cell disease.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In Tyler, it is also the 10th anniversary of Turn Tyler Pink; so this is a great time to give red (donate blood) with Carter BloodCare and support the blood requirements for cancer patients and others in need of blood transfusions.
