Give blood. Give life. Give now.

Did you know, our patients – most of whom are fighting cancer – rely on more than 37,000 units of blood and platelets each year for their survival? And every one of those units comes from people like you, family, friends and other caring people who want to make a difference.
 
Blood donations save lives every day at City of Hope. Nicole Shultz, diagnosed with an aggressive form of acute myelogenous leukemia when she was a teenager, knows all too well how important it is to have a supply of blood and platelets. She has been a patient for over a decade and over that time received blood and platelets as part of her treatment.
 
By becoming a donor, you'll be helping cancer patients going through the most challenging health crisis of their lives. A little of your time could mean a lifetime for another.
