Lots of premature babies need to have a blood transfusion during their stay in neonatal care. The blood transfusion may help the preemie to develop faster and feed more successfully which could ultimately lead to them going home sooner. It is estimated that 60,000 units of blood and 15,000 units of platelets are used on neonatal units every year in the UK. Can you help? www.blood.co.uk
Campagna di comunicazione per il World Blood Donor Day 2012. Non convince molto il legame tra donatore di sangue ed eroe. La donazione di sangue non ci rende eroi, solo esseri umani in ascolto delle necessità altrui
THE BLOOD DONOR Albert Fischer started donating pints of his O-positive when Truman was president, and has continued to do so every 56 days—for 58 years. On a fall morning, TV camera crews and reporters stand at a country club in Long Island waiting for Albert Fischer, to drive up in his car with the license plate O BLOOD. Fischer is being celebrated today for an extraordinary feat: The pint that he's about to donate will bring his lifetime total to 40 gallons of whole blood!!!
