Bank of Alaska
will be parking its blood-mobile in Kodiak starting today (Tuesday). They are
taking blood donations from interested donors throughout this week and over
Memorial Day weekend.
Bob Trout, the Crab Festival drive coordinator:
(Drive 1 :29s “…just for a transfusion”)
residents have the opportunity to double the impact of their blood donations during
the upcoming Memorial Day weekend through the blood bank’s use of the newer
ALYX (alex) system, which lets the donor give double the amount of red cells as
a regular whole blood donation, without collecting other blood components. The
ALYX system also replenishes the donor’s body fluids to keep them comfortable
before, during and after the donation period.
mentions that just an hour of your time can benefit many.
(Drive 2 :27s “…within the last twelve months.”)
