American Red Cross needs Donors of all Blood Types, races and ethnicities

 

American Red CrossNashville, TN – The American Red Cross urges people of all races and ethnicities to give blood or platelets to help increase the diversity of the blood supply.

However, for patients with rare blood types or those who receive regular blood transfusions, blood must be matched closely – beyond the primary A, B, O and AB blood types – to reduce the risk of developing complications from transfusion therapy.
