Did you know?
- O-negative blood can be transfused to patients of all blood types. It is always in great demand and often in short supply.
- When O-negative blood is in short supply, specially tested O-positive blood is used in traumas.
- Patients with traumatic injuries, undergoing cancer treatments or receiving transplants need more platelets than their bodies can produce.
How your donation makes a difference
For 45 years, the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC) has been saving lives with the support of donors.
Your donation ensures the blood supply is replenished and ready for patients like Taylor, San Antonio mom of 3, who recently lost her fight with cancer.
Your donation gave Taylor more time with her family and friends. It is our privilege to continue to share her story.
