Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center is hosting an American Red Cross blood drive 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Nov. 20-22, in the Francis X. Knott Conference Center. Every participant will receive a meal coupon, parking pass and special gift from Johns Hopkins Bayview. More important, participants will take pride in knowing they saved up to three lives!
Type O, A negative or B negative donors can make twice the difference by scheduling a double red cell blood donation. During a double red cell donation, a machine separates the red blood cells from other blood components and returns the remaining components back to the donor. By doing this, the machine is able to double the amount of red cells it would normally collect in a standard blood donation.
Donors are actually donating two units of blood, instead of one, and saving twice the number of lives.
