Blood Assurance Needs More Donors to Help Patients

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- Blood Assurance is low on blood supplies, and needs your help as soon as possible.

Local hospitals have received two trauma patients this week who need a large amount of O negative and O positive blood for treatment, so donors are in high demand.

To be eligible to donate, you must be at least 18 years or older, be in good health and weight at least 1 hundred 10 pounds.

Donors are also asked to drink plenty of fluids, avoid caffeine and eat a meal that is rich in iron before making a donation.
