2018_EventGraphicApril is National Donate Life Month

April has been designated as National Donate Life Month and LifeSource is sharing important information on how blood transfusions play a critical part in the transplant procedure. Not only may organ transplants need blood, but sometimes a lot of blood. A liver recipient needs between six to 10 units of red blood cells while a heart recipient can require up to six units of red blood cells during the transplant procedure.
