Local blood shortage prompts call for donors
It started with a blood drive at a hospital 12 years ago.
Tracy Higgins donated blood and from that point on, “It just seemed like the right thing to do,” the 66-year-old Crystal Lake resident said. She now donates four to five times a year.
“People need to understand how important it is for the hospitals to have a continuous source of good blood,” Higgins said. “People always want to react when there is an emergency, but it is a continual need.”
