The December Kemptville Mobile Donor Centre is short on blood donors. More donors are encouraged to book an appointment to give blood in Kemptville this December 3. Collecting blood during the colder winter months can be challenging, because the weather can increasingly keep people indoors and many donors are away for the season. But for local patients, like 8-year-old Abigail Hosick who has Precursor B Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, the need for blood doesn’t take a winter break.
Abigail received her first blood transfusion on March 25, 2017, and will continue to need treatments for the next year.
WHEN: Monday December 3, clinic hours: 1:30 pm to 4 pm, and 5 pm to 7:30 pm
WHERE: Kemptville Campus, 48 Shearer St, W. B. George Centre, Kemptville.
