You, Too, Can Become a Blood Donor

Local blood donor Don Bryant

January is National Blood Donor month — so what better time to make a resolution to become a regular blood donor? Don Bryant of Shreveport is one…he’s donated more than 100 gallons of blood and blood components. He also gives much of his time encouraging others to donate. Mickaela Boudreaux, a 17-year-old high school student and cheerleader, is also a regular blood donor. She and her mother regularly give plasma and platelets together at LifeShare Blood Centers’ Monroe location. According to LifeShare, about one in every three people in the U.S. will need blood in their lifetime. (I was one of those people, by the way…I had a C-section when my little girl was born, and had to have three pints of blood before I left the hospital.) But less than five out of 100 Americans are blood donors. You can help increase that number just by making an appointment with your closest LifeShare location…or stopping by any local donation drive.
