Did You Know?

  • Each year, about 100,000 new blood donors will be needed to give life, replacing the aging donor base and maintain the national blood supply.
  • People with type O-negative (O-) are considered universal donors, as they can donate red blood cells to all other blood type recipients. That's why it's always in high demand - it's used in emergency situations when there is no time to test a patients blood type.
  • Male stem cell donors are more likely to be matched with recipients because they offer better patient outcomes after transplant. We are calling for male donors from ages 17 to 35 years to register to become stem cell donors
