Whether you post a "selfie" on Facebook when you give blood or casually mention to a friend that you are a blood donor, knowingly or not, you're helping spread much-needed awareness about helping fill a need many Americans may take for granted.
Finding a compatible blood product for a patient transfusion isn’t always as simple as identifying their blood type. Depending upon the individual patient, it may take several days and involve Bonfils Blood Center’s Reference Laboratory, the only AABB* accredited immunohematology reference lab in Colorado and one of just 66 in the world which performs more complex testing than most hospital laboratories are equipped to handle.
The need for blood doesn't take a holiday, so please consider donating at a Bonfils community donor center or mobile blood drive sometime during this busy season to help ensure a safe and ready supply well into the new year.
Broncos fans scored a big win for patients in need at the 20th annual Drive for Life presented by Bonfils Blood Center and the Denver Broncos Tuesday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Show your support for active duty and veteran members of the Armed Forces by teaming up with Bonfils and Orangetheory Fitness (OTF) by donating blood in honor of our country's veterans.
