While events like the Boston Marathon and the September 11th attacks rightly capture the attention of our community, the irony is the blood needed for these events pales in comparison to the regular need each and every day. It is because of the ongoing daily blood needs that you often hear us ask people NOT to wait for a tragedy to donate blood, but to come out and donate blood on a regular basis instead.
