There is a dramatic increase in the demand for O Negative blood by Central Florida hospitals and as a result OneBlood, our local blood center, is urging people with O Negative blood to please donate as soon as possible.
O Negative blood is in constant demand because of its universal power to save lives. O Negative red blood cells can be given to any patient regardless of the recipient’s blood type – and that is why it is so vital. Trauma patients, cancer patients and premature babies are among the people requiring O Negative blood every day.
If you do not know your blood type, donate blood and the blood center will let you know.
