It's an exciting time at Bonfils Blood Center as we introduce the first new blood product in about 20 years to help patients in need across Colorado and beyond.
About a dozen people sign up to have their names added to the Be The Match Registry® at a typical marrow donor registry drive. But on Saturday, June 25, 142 people registered during a three-hour event to help find a Stapleton 3rd grader and many others like him hope for a lifesaving match.
Patients need blood every two seconds in the United States, every day of the year. Bonfils will be opening three of its community donor centers on Monday, July 4 to help maintain a steady blood supply.
Bonfils is growing to make blood donation even more convenient. Our Parker community donor center located on South Parker Road just south of Lincoln Avenue is now open for whole blood, platelet and plasma donors on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.
