Did you know that By-Pass Surgery and Knee and Hip Replacement Surgery require up to 5 units of blood for the patient during the operation?
That’s equivalent to 5 individual blood donations, per procedure.
With the amount of blood that Zoomers require for health care, CARP members who are able, should make a special commitment to donate to Canadian Blood Services on a regular basis, to make sure there’s a good supply available should we ever be in need.
There are restrictions on who is eligible to donate. Click here to see if you qualify.
Did you also know that there are convenient, permanent, blood donor clinic located in the Manulife Centre at Bloor and Bay and another in the Canadian Blood Services Building at 67 College St.
Call 1 888 2 DONATE (1 888 236-6283) for information on clinics and times.
If you’d like to arrange to go as group of Downtown CARP members, email me [email protected] and we’ll make a plan to go together… and maybe stop in at Starbucks or Tim’s for a coffee afterwords.
