Last week I stopped in for a cleaning at Hollytree Dental in Tyler, Texas. While I was checking out after my appointment, I noticed information about a blood drive that was going on with the help of Carter BloodCare. I had no idea but this is actually the third blood drive they have worked together to make happen but what a great thing to do. Donating blood can help save lives and it doesn’t take long so if you have time on Friday, July 15th you should set an appointment to stop in and donate the gift of life. 

There are medical emergencies that require blood all the time, it might seem like such an insignificant thing to donate blood but supply levels are low so it’s more important now to donate than ever before. It was only a few years ago that my own brother was in the hospital fighting cancer and he needed blood transfusions on multiple occasions; we were fortunate that blood was available for him. He has since recovered but having gone through that makes me understand how important donating blood truly is.
