Lifeblood makes emergency appeal for all blood types
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Lifeblood is in desperate need of all blood types, especially O-negative.
Recent winter storms across the country put additional pressure on the nation’s blood supply which is already trying to recover from low turnout over the holidays.
Since the beginning of the year, blood donations here in the Mid-South have declined drastically according to officials.
Lifeblood says platelet donors are needed as well.
