BY DONNA SUMMERALL
One of the easiest ways an ordinary person can do something extraordinary is to donate blood. The entire process takes about half an hour and can mean the difference between life or death for someone in an emergency.
â€śWe are always in need of donors, especially now with the holidays approaching,â€ť said Phlebotomist Brittiany Peden of United Blood Services. â€śSome people think we only want O negative type blood, but that isnâ€™t true. We need all types of blood, but O negative is universally used in emergency situations where you donâ€™t have enough time to type the patientâ€™s blood. We are happy to have donors of all types.â€ť
