San Diego Blood Bank must collect more than 350 units of blood each day to meet the needs of local patients who are battling life-threatening blood disorders and cancers, suffering from traumas such as burns or serious accidents, or even complications from childbirth. One pint of blood can save up to three lives. Schedule your appointment to donate blood.
Because of blood donors, local patients receive the lifesaving care they need and hope for a healthy life. Read stories about blood recipients in Southern California and their families and how, together, they survived health obstacles and illnesses, and overcame serious traumas with blood transfusions.
