The “Make a Difference” campaign begins with September National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and continues through October National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Everyone who registers to donate now through Saturday, Oct. 31 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives will receive the “Every Donor Makes a Difference – Give Hope, Give Blood” t-shirt. The design features a “fight cancer” ribbon composed of multi-colored ribbons representing the many types of cancer.
Your donation will help cancer patients and many others in need of blood transfusions and other blood products. We especially encourage the continued support of type O whole blood donors and type A/B platelet and plasma donors.
