ConnectLife has seen a tremendous response from our WNY community after our call for blood donors, but our work is not over. Collecting blood is a marathon, not a sprint. Blood donors are needed to consistently give now and in the future.
Remember the words of the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams: "Social distancing does not mean social disengagement."
We will be taking appointments ONLY, for the foreseeable future. Even if you can't find an appointment right now - local patients at WNY hospitals will still need you in the coming weeks. Click here to schedule your appointment to donate blood – appointments available throughout April and May.
Important Update: ConnectLife's Eastern Hills Blood Donation Center is moving to ConnectLife headquarters - effective immediately. We are continuing to monitor the outbreak of COVID-19. Information and resources on COVID-19, blood donation, and social distancing can be found here.
Alexander was born with a rare congenital condition which led to him needing surgery at just 5 weeks old. Because of the complexity of his condition, Alexander had to be placed on a heart lung bypass machine (ECMO) at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo to allow his body to rest before the surgery. To help keep Alexander alive the ECMO required blood to be flowing through it at all times, and this was made possible by generous Unyts blood donors just like you. Alexander is now a beautiful, healthy 5 year old and his parents cannot thank the WNY community enough for saving their son.
