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.

Last Thursday's blood drive at the Stanford Baptist Church showed just how strong that support was; the parking lot was full all day, and despite an all-hands effort from the Kentucky Blood Center, there was an hour or longer wait to donate blood.
