Your B- Blood is Important

B Negative

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 in 67 people have B- blood (approximately 1.5% of the population).

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.

Thank you for being a blood donor.
