The Isabella Santos Foundation Annual Blood/Platelet Drive with the Community Blood Center of the Carolinas (CBCC) began in honor of Isabella who’s life benefited from frequent blood transfusions. CBCC is like a family to us and we will never forget their support and dedication in increasing Isabella’s quality of life. Our next Platelet Drive is scheduled for the week of June 21-June 28 and the Blood Drive is scheduled on Saturday, September 29th at our Annual 5K For Kids Cancer but you don’t have to wait until then. Honor Isabella by contacting CBCC today. Tell them ISF sent you!
Celebrate a life by saving lives. We look forward to having your support and continuing this tradition year after year.
Why do we support CBCC? As the primary blood supplier to the region’s patients and hospitals, it was very important in Isabella’s life to have local resources to count on every day. CBCC supports our local hospitals by providing blood needed to treat community patients.
Who does CBCC help? In our community, there are countless stories of patients battling illness. A common element in many of these stories is blood – red blood cells, platelets and plasma. The availability of blood products is often the difference between life and death. Every time you donate blood with CBCC, you’re supporting the life of someone in our own community; a young cancer patient, an African American with sickle cell disease, an adult undergoing a transplant, or an accident victim. Supporting CBCC saves local lives and keeps families whole. Together, we work to strengthen the bonds of community.
Help save lives year around! Contact CBCC to make your appointment to give blood or platelets at your convenience and take a look at public drives coming near you. It’s amazing to see donors who donate blood or platelets year round in honor of Isabella! Donating and want to send in your photo to show your support? Email your photo to Maitland Danner so we can show your support on our Facebook and Twitter.
