CBC: Help fight cancer with local blood drives

DARKE COUNTY - Darke County Sponsor Groups will be partnering with Community Blood Center (CBC) this October in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with many community blood drives throughout Darke County. Everyone who registers to donate will receive the special-edition “I Fight Cancer, I Give Blood” t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com. Locally donors can also contact Dana Puterbaugh, Darke County Account Representative at 937-997-2199 or dputerbaugh@givingblood.org.

The “I Fight Cancer, I Give Blood” t-shirt is grey and features the iconic pink ribbon, the international symbol of breast cancer awareness. The t-shirt is free to everyone who registers to donate at any CBC donor center and most mobile blood drives from Sept. 30 through Nov. 2.

CBC is proud to support the fight against breast cancer. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness about the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.

Blood donors play an important role in the treatment of cancer patients. Chemotherapy and other treatments have a harsh impact on blood cells. Transfusions of donated blood and blood products are vital to reducing complications and saving lives.
