Every 2 seconds Someone in the United States Needs Blood

That amount to approximately 38,000 pints of blood needed everyday in the U.S.  We’re talking a whole lot of blood. 

Blood is required in hospitals and emergency treatment facilities for patients with cancer and other diseases, for organ transplant recipients, and to help save the lives of accident victims.  Burns victims, premature infants and people with blood disorders and anemia are also in need of blood and blood products.
