Florida’s Blood Centers is appealing for donations of O negative blood type as soon as possible. O negative is the universal blood type and is transfused into any person needing immediate treatment for traumas and emergencies.
Anyone interested in making a donation can visit the blood centers Web site, www.floridasbloodcenters.org.
Blood donations help save the lives of people needing routine surgery, trauma patients, premature babies and cancer patients at local hospitals who depend on those donations for life-saving blood transfusion.
For more information, call 1-888-9DONATE for center locations.
