It seems like everyone has either been sick recently or is getting sick. It's been one heck of a flu season and some people have had strep throat as well. When so many people get sick it means that fewer people are donating blood and that causes a blood shortage.That is exactly what is happening right now and all blood types are needed.

If you can donate blood then now would be a great time for you to stop at one of these LifeShre blood drives this week or through the rest of the month.
