DFCI/BWH Blood Mobile visits BWFH

January 2019 Blood Drive

Those who donated were treated to a Kraft Family Blood Donation Center sweatshirt as a thank you gift

The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Brigham and Women’s Hospital Blood Mobile―the traveling extension of the Kraft Family Blood Donor Center―recently visited Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital giving employees and members of the community the opportunity to give blood to support patients undergoing cancer treatments, accident victims, transplant recipients and more.

At the event, coordinated by Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital’s Community Health and Wellness Assistant Katie Plante, a record 30 donors volunteered yielding 26 units of blood. Those who donated were treated to a Kraft Family Blood Donation Center sweatshirt as a thank you gift.

“Every time the Blood Mobile visits BWFH, our staff are ready to give. Our latest drive was particularly impressive!” says Plante. “I know the Kraft Family Blood Donation Center is extremely grateful.”

If you missed your chance to donate blood this time, don’t worry. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Brigham and Women’s Hospital Blood Mobile will return to BWFH on Wednesday, April 24!
