WLOX Editorial: Red Cross in need of blood donations

WLOX Editorial: Donate blood to the American Red Cross

What if your wife, your husband, your child or the neighbor down the street was injured in a car wreck and needed blood? What if your best friend was undergoing cancer treatment and needed platelets? What if a friend at work needed blood for a surgical procedure?

would be great if there were no car wrecks tomorrow, no need for cancer treatments tomorrow, and no need for surgery tomorrow. Great, because the Red Cross is running low on blood donations right now.

But we all know there will wrecks, there will be cancer, there will be surgery and lots of other needs for blood donations, tomorrow and the days and weeks that follow.

That's why the we are asking you to donate life giving blood. The Red Cross is holding drives across the coast in the coming days and weeks. Search online or call the Red Cross for a donation date and time.

You can help save lives.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
