Tewksbury, MA – Blair House will host a blood drive on Friday, September 9, 2016, at 10 Erlin Terrace, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
As a thank you, donors will receive a pair of portable mini-speakers for electronics.
Blood collected at the drive will benefit patients at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
People undergoing treatment for cancer, heart disease - as well as accident victims, transplant recipients, babies in the newborn ICU, and many other patients – depend on transfusions to control their bleeding. Volunteer donors are the only source of blood products for these patients.
