Lifeline Blood Services Needs Type O Negative

Posted

Please make a difference in someone’s life this week and give blood.  LIFELINE Blood Services bloodmobiles will be in your community for Blood drives. Patients in West Tennessee hospitals have been using  type o negative more than usual and the supply of this type is dangerously low. As many of you know, O negative is extremely unique because it can be given to anyone, regardless of their blood type, in an emergency situation.  However, when the patient in need of blood is an O negative, they may only receive O negative.  Also, O negative blood is often transfused to newborn babies in need of transfusions. 

This week, when LIFELINE Bloodmobiles are in your area:

Monday, February 04, 2019-                                       First United Methodist Church, Lexington from 1-6 p.m.

Crockett Co. Courthouse, Alamo from 1-6 p.m.
