According to the American Red Cross' website, we are facing a national blood crisis -- the worst blood shortage in over a decade -- posing a concerning risk to patient care. Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. It is essential for surgeries, cancer treatment, chronic illnesses and traumatic injuries. Whether a patient receives whole blood, red cells, platelets or plasma, this lifesaving care starts with one person making a generous donation.
