LIFELINE Blood Services is in critical need of all blood types. Currently there is a one-day supply of blood for local hospitals. “We are issuing an immediate appeal for blood in order to meet the demands for West Tennessee patients,” said Joe Schifano, CEO at LIFELINE Blood Services. Recently, blood donations have not been enough to supply hospitals. “The current situation is serious and without immediate response from blood donors, the blood inventory for West Tennessee patients could reach dangerous levels,” he added. Blood donors are urged to give blood this week.
