The blood shortage is dire. The Red Cross is issuing a plea for all eligible donors to make an appointment to give now.
Every day, blood donors help patients of all ages: accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.
