Your B- Blood is Important

[vc_row el_position="first"]

As a B Negative blood donor, you are unique due to the rarity of your blood.  Because your blood is rare, it is important to maintain sufficient supplies for our community and local patients.  In fact, only 1.5% of the population has B Negative blood.  Your regular and frequent blood donations are especially valued, and many in our area will be given a fighting chance at life because of your generous gift.
