Blood is the Gift of Life

Forty percent of the population is eligible to donate blood, yet only 10 percent actually do. If you're a donor, what would you tell those who could donate blood - but don't?

We posed that question to someone very close to issue. "How can I ask other people to do it if I don't do it myself?" says DHMC heart surgeon and blood donor Larry Dacey, MD.

Oncology patients require a lot of blood transfusions and platelets. We are always in need of donations. If you are able, please take time to give blood.

Where to donate blood at DHMC

It's fast and easy to find the Blood Donor Program on the second floor of Norris Cotton Cancer Center in Lebanon across from the 2K Radiation/Oncology reception area. Find out if you are eligible to donate. Then book an appointment on line, over the phone or just walk in.

Giving made easy with eDonor
