How is it possible for a human body, which holds about 1.5 gallons of blood, to donate 5 gallons? Answer: One pint at a time. Today was my 40th visit to a Cascade Regional Blood Services (CRBS) “bloodmobile”. Each visit produces one pint which saves three lives. So, 40 visits equals 120 lives saved. My math works.
CRBS makes it easy to give. Every eight weeks I receive a call from a scheduler to tell me a donation station will be at St. Clare’s on Wednesday and to make a reservation. The morning of the reservation, I receive a reminder call and away we go.
