Blood Donor Center

Give Blood or Platelets. Give Life. Give Today. 

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. 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.
