The goal set for the Blood Drive was 56. There were 62 donors with 60 units of blood collected. Thank you to all the donors. How donated blood helps multiple people When discussing how blood donation can help save multiple lives, it's important to know how just one pint is broken down and transfused to different types of patients. Up to four separate life- saving blood components can be derived from just one pint of donated blood. This approach to treatment, referred to as blood component therapy, allows sev- eral patients to benefit from one pint of donated whole blood. The main transfusable blood compo- nents include red cells, platelets, plasma and cryoprecipitate. Red cells: • Carry oxygen throughout the body • Shelf life of 42 days • Given to trauma and surgery patients Platelets • Help prevent massive blood loss • Shelf life of only five days • Transfused to cancer patients, organ transplant patients and sur- gery patients Plasma • Carries platelets, red cells and proteins throughout the body • Shelf life of one year (frozen) • Used for burn victims and patients with bleeding disorders for their kindness and sympathy. Thanks for caring. Kelly, with her big smile, will be missed! God bless, Dalton, Ryan and Lutgen families Cryoprecipitate • Portion of plasma rich in dot- ting factors • Shelf life of one year (frozen) • Helps patients suffering from hemophilia and Von Willebrand disease Thank you to St. Anne's Church in Kimball for the use of the facil- ity; volunteers who called donors, helped at registration, canteen, cooked, prepared and/or donated food for the Red Cross and voun- teers.
