Give Yourself

 

 Have You Saved a Life Today?

Most of us think you have to be a doctor or firefighter to be saving lives on a regular basis. We need to start thinking differently. You can be saving lives on a regular basis. It takes so little time it can be done during your lunch break.

Give Yourself...Literally!

The bodies that God has given us are very complex. Regardless of all of the advances in technology we still can't create a substitute for many of the parts of our bodies. Doctors are dependent on donations from individuals for items such as blood, tissue and organs to save the lives of others. Maybe you have been a benefactor of someones donation in the past. Consider the following examples as a way you can save lives:

Why Donate Blood?

Blood is the part of life that is given to those who need it by 
those who have the resource to satisfy the need. The love of fellow human and a desire to share something of oneself is what singles out a blood donor from the others. Emergencies occur every minute. For each patient requiring  blood, it is an emergency and the patients could have set back if blood is not available.


Your blood donation may be even more special than you realize

A single donation from you can help one or more patients. This is possible because whole blood is made up of several useful components. These components perform special functions in your body and in the body of patients who receive your blood. The various blood components are Red Blood Cells, White Blood Cells, Platelets, Plasma and selected Plasma Proteins. Each of these components can be separated from your donated volume of blood and transfused into a specific patient requiring that particular component. Thus, many can benefit from one unit of blood.

Blood is needed every minute

  • To replace blood lost because of accidents or diseases.

  • To treat shock due to injury.

  • For Major & Minor surgeries including open heart surgeries, transplants etc.

  • For burn victims.

  • For patients suffering from Anemia.

  • During child birth for the mother.

  • For exchange transfusion for new born infants.

  • To make blood derivatives which are used to treat medical problems.

  • For children suffering from ailments like Thalassaemia, Hemophilia (bleeding disorders) , Leukemia, Blood Cancer

Blood Donation

Every two seconds someone in the world needs blood.  Are you aware that you are saving as many as three lives for each pint of blood that you donate? That is the amount of blood that is donated in one visit. You will be saving multiple lives by being a blood donor. In addition, your body is designed to remanufacture new blood to replace the amount you donated. You haven't given up anything except a small amount of time. Contact Red Cross to learn about giving blood and schedule a time to donate at http://www.indianblooddonors.com/  Lives are depending on it.
