Patients in need of lifesaving transfusions need your help. All blood types are needed. In fact, blood type O negative is critical. This means less than one day’s supply is on-hand to help local patients. As the universal blood type, O negative can be used to treat any patient, regardless of their individual blood type. O negative is also the only blood type that is used to treat premature and unborn babies.
