WHO - World blood donator day, is quickly coming up.
The theme for this year is.............
"Safe blood for Saving mothers"
Many women with Accreta will need a blood transfusion to save their lives, so that they can be here on the other side. The average transfusion for an Accreta mother is 8 units- around 4 litres of blood. Many however will need much more than that. I myself needed 54 Units and 80 blood products from around 134 donations. Without that gift of safe blood I would not be here today to enjoy my baby growing up. WHO Donor day is a time to for us who have received to help give back, by saying a big 'thank you' to all those that have generously given.
If you, like me, have a received the gift of blood donation and want to be a part of giving back to donors this World Blood Donor Day, then send an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
"Safe blood for saving mothers"
The objectives of this year’s global campaign
Don't forget if you would like to help, or be a face for the International Hope for Accreta Blood Drive in January 2015, please let us know. We look forward to hearing from you.
