National Blood Donors Month is January

A need for blood is always present, no matter the time of year. We just finished the year-end “Townsquare Media Blood Drive” and it was very successful… but this is an ongoing need. The South Texas Blood and Tissue Center serves 67 hospitals and clinics in 43 counties 24 hours a day, every day of the year. January is National Blood Donor Month, a time to thank donors who are dedicated to helping save lives.

Donors like Brian and Kristi Cordeau, who donate as often as they can, are committed to saving lives. After their daughter, Aida, was diagnosed with leukemia in October, friends and family members have also helped the community by holding blood drives in her name, according to a new release from the blood bank. “With her diagnosis and three transfusions so far, we can see how much they are needed and what they do for the human body after it receives blood products,” said Kristi Cordeau. “Blood donation is something that doesn’t cost you anything but time. A little bit of time and travel and you can save up to three lives per pint of donated blood.”
