Thank YOU for saving a life!

LMH's LouAnn Baumchen gives blood via the Aphresis Machine, which separates the plasma & platelets and returns the rest back to the donor. This process take longer but the donor can give more often.

Lawrence community helps stave off CBC blood shortage.

LMH would like to thank the community for their response to the blood shortage in our area! Friday’s blood drive with Community Blood Center was an amazing success! We had a record collection of 101 units with 18 donors giving through apheresis (double units)!

Faith Nilhas, MLS (ASCP), LMH Blood Bank Supervisor, commented, "Thank you so much to everyone for your great response to the critical need for blood. We could not be more pleased so many came to our aid and replenished our supply!" Mark your calendars, the next blood drive will be November 2nd!
