We all know blood donations help cancer patients, those with liver disease, and others, but did you know there are health benefits to donors, too? Donating blood can reduce harmful iron stores, lower your cancer risk, burn calories, and result in fewer heart attacks and strokes. You also get a free blood analysis.Visit http://www.heartlandbc.org/ for information about Heartland Blood Center and blood donation facts.
