Be a Hero: Donate Blood | Local news

MANCHESTER – The American Red Cross urges the public to join its life-saving mission by giving blood or platelets this March on the occasion of the month of the Red Cross. Donors of all blood types, especially type O, are urgently needed to ensure blood availability for patients this spring.

Every day, thousands of patients depend on blood donations to save their lives – patients like Heath Cornford who spent his first 217 days in hospital. Born in February 2018 with an abnormal narrowing of the heart, Heath underwent many complex surgeries, including a heart transplant, and required a series of blood transfusions.

“I can’t tell you how grateful we are for the life-saving donations that saved our son,” said his mother, Mylinda Cornford. “Blood is something you can donate for free. You can make an impact, save a life and return to your community. “

Heath recently celebrated his second birthday and is a prosperous and energetic child.
