The Red Cross is putting out a call for people to roll their sleeves up and donate blood.
It is a virus that kills more people each year than AIDS, and yet most know little about it: Hepatitis C.
Summer is a rough time for blood donations, says the American Red Cross\’s Steve Mavika, because people are on vacation and there aren\’t any school-based blood drives going on.
The hot, steamy, stormy weather is leading to the
worst blood shortage in 15 years.
