(Pulled from redcrossblood.org)

  • Approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed every day in the U.S.
  • Nearly 7,000 units of platelets and 10,000 units of plasma are needed daily in the U.S.
  • Nearly 21 million blood components are transfused each year in the U.S.
  • The average red blood cell transfusion is approximately 3 units.
  • The blood type most often requested by hospitals is type O.
  • Sickle cell disease affects 90,000 to 100,000 people in the U.S. About 1,000 babies are born with the disease each year. Sickle cell patients can require blood transfusions throughout their lives.
  • According to the American Cancer Society, more than 1.8 million people are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in 2020. Many of them will need blood, sometimes daily, during their chemotherapy treatment.

2021 Recap

As The American Red Cross continues to try and recover from and blood and platelet shortage, Daybreak citizens have shown their support this year by donating 93 total pints of blood during 2021. One pint of blood has the potential to save three lives, so that means Daybreak residents have come together to potentially save the lives of 279 Utahns! That’s enough people to fill up almost 6 school buses of adults!

If you are interested in taking a seat and joining your neighbors to help shore up blood supply across the state, LiveDAYBREAK and The American Red Cross are partnering together once again on April 11, 2022. A registration link will be made available when we are closer to the date.
