Thank you to our Cincinnati and Mason area sponsors of the 2013 Light The Night Walks!
A message from our Presenting Sponsor, Hoxworth Blood Center:
Hoxworth Blood Center is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2013 Light The Night Walks. Blood donors provide critical resources needed for treating blood cancers. Together, Hoxworth donors and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society can better the lives of those in our community.
The need for blood donors is greater today than ever before. A leukemia patient may need six transfusions of red blood cells and eight platelet transfusions daily during their treatment. A bone marrow transplant patient may require platelets from 120 donors and red cells from another 20.
Hoxworth is the sole provider of blood and blood components to 31 hospitals and medical centers in the Tri-State. Each day, nearly 400 donors are needed to help the patients in our community. Volunteer blood donors remain the only source of lifesaving blood products.
Give the gift of life by making a blood or platelet donation! Call (513) 451-0910 to schedule an appointment or visit www.hoxworth.org.
