January is National Blood Donor Month. According to the American Red Cross, only 3% of Americans donate blood a year. Approximately 1.9 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer and may need a blood transfusion as part of their treatment. Cancer patients use nearly ¼ of the blood supply. Giving blood can be an easy, painless process. Consider donating blood this year to help those in need of a blood transfusion.
