OakBend Medical Center Auxiliary sponsors the Gulf Coast Regional Blood
Center's blood drive and participates in the Commit for Life Program.
Blood is used to aid critically ill patients, accident victims,
surgical patients and those patients suffering chronic diseases such as
cancer and leukemia. Because blood can be divided into three components
- red blood cells, plasma and platelets, a single pint of blood may
help to save the lives of up to three patients.

2. Allow us to contact you

how your commitment is making a difference. We'll give you information

to Commit for Life. Talk to friends and family. Get them involved. |
is no substitute for blood. It has to come from one person in order to
give to another. A critical number of voluntary donations are required
every day to meet the need for blood in the Texas Gulf Coast region.
However, we are consistently falling short and falling short means we
may not have enough lifesaving blood for someone who needs it.
