There is no substitute for human blood. One in three people will need blood sometime during their lives. Blood lasts only 42 days. Your regular donations are critically important. Close to 2,000 men, women and children in our community, including cancer, transplant and surgery patients, trauma victims, newborn babies and many others need blood transfusions each day.
What does it take to be a blood donor? Blood donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and not have donated blood within the last 56 days. Sixteen-year-old donors must present a signed parental permission form. Visit nybc.org/16 to obtain the form. People age 76 and older can donate blood if they meet all criteria and present a physician’s letter just once after reaching age 76. There are some medical conditions that can keep you from giving blood. For more information regarding medical eligibility for blood donation call 1.800.688.0900.
