Mississippi Blood Services is proud to partner with the American Cancer Society this APRIL!

Donor ABOut a Cause-full colorTogether we are raising awareness about the link between cancer patients and their need for blood for many different reasons throughout their treatment. These are two great organizations that often work hand in hand together to help save patients’ lives.

The MBS’ Blood Donors ABOut A Cause campaign reminds people why they should donate. It’s not just because every two seconds someone needs blood. It’s not just because 95 percent of the U.S. population will need blood at some point in their lives. It’s not just because it’s the right thing to do. It’s about a cause! Blood Donors ABOut a Cause is the 2015 partnership between MBS and other not-for-profit organizations in Mississippi to help get the word out: there are a lot of patients who need support, care and blood.

The Need for Platelet Donors

Did you know that some cancer treatments cause a loss of platelets? When platelet levels fall too low, patients may need platelets from donors to replenish their supply and prevent life-threatening problems. Who else may need platelets? People undergoing organ transplant, bone marrow transplants, heart surgery or even burn victims. With the shelf life of platelets being only 5-7 days and some patients using 3 or more units per day during their treatment, the need is constant. Make donating platelets and saving lives part of your monthly routine. Call 601-981-3232 to schedule your appointment today.
