An example of how giving blood can help someone is the case of young Benji. His mom stated, “Benji needed 19 transfusions after being diagnosed with Leukemia. Blood donors we’ll never meet helped save our son’s life.”
According to OneBlood representative Justin Malen, “Our blood drives at Destin Commons so far this year have successfully collected 196 units of blood. This translates to potentially benefiting 588 patients in area hospitals to include Ft. Walton Beach Medical Center, Eglin AFB Hospital and Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast.”
