October brings to mind thoughts of Halloween, Breast Cancer Awareness, and the colors of fall. But did you know there are at least 113 other causes and celebrations commemorated during the month of October?
The folks at United Blood Services report donations are down. There is a particular need for type O negative red cell donations and type AB plasma donations. October is, of course, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Cancer patients are often in need of platelet and red cell transfusions to counter the effects of chemotherapthy, and radiation.
