<sh>Blood Desperately Needed

<bt> Inova Blood Donor Services is completely out of all types of blood and is in desperate need of all blood types.  Every day, more than 200 donors are needed for patients in our community. Friday's snowstorm comes on top of recent weeks of cold weather and the flu season, both of which prompted a severe drop in donors and depleted the blood supply.

Inova Blood Donor Services is appealing to everyone who can donate to give the gift of life as soon as possible.  By taking just one hour to donate blood, a blood donor can help save the lives of three people.

Inova Blood Donor Services supplies blood to patients at 15 hospitals in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. Blood donors are needed every day to help many sick and injured patients, including cancer patients, newborns with complications, and patients who have lost blood as a result of injury, surgery or organ transplantation.

To schedule an appointment or find out more information about blood donations, contact Inova Blood Donor Services at 1-866-BLOODSAVES (1-866-256-6372) or request an appointment online at
