You don't have to leap from tall buildings to be a hero. Donating blood or platelets saves lives. Your donation could help save as many as three local patients who need you to be their hero. It doesn't take super-human powers to perform a super-human act. All you need to do is donate blood or platelets.
The need for blood is great. Every three seconds, someone in Kentucky needs a blood transfusion. That need continues to grow, but with just one blood donation, you can do your part to ensure that the local blood supply is at peak levels.
The requirements to be a donor are simple- 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in general good health. It takes less than an hour and you can do it again 56 days later.
And consider this. Please bring a friend or family member with you when you donate. You and your "blood buddy" can double the good you will do.
