We are very proud that the Katelyn Bedard Bone Marrow Association is a member of the Canadian Blood Services 'Partners for Life' Program.
Partners for Life is a nationwide program that is designed for corporate and community organizations. By joining the program,our organization made a commitment to save lives by donating blood as a team. The need for blood is ongoing, and patients that are treated for such things as leukemia, surgery, other cancers, and trauma depend on a stable supply of blood year round, which is why Partners for Life organizations have the power to save lives!
Patients that undergo a bone marrow transplant need a large number of blood transfusions both before and after their transplant as well as during their initial treatment. Including their pre-transplant treatement, it is not uncommon for a transplant patient to need over 100 transfusions. These patients cannot survive without the support of blood donors in their community. We feel this is another excellent way to help patients faced with a bone marrow transplant.
The KBBMA has pledged to donate 100 units of blood in 2009. If you would like to help us achieve or surpass our pledge please contact us at email@example.com for more information. To have your blood donations counted towards our goal, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call
If your company or community group is interested in joining Partners for Life as well, please visit the Canadian Blood Services web site for more information.
New donors can join our team after their 1st donation.
