The UCI Health Blood Drive on September 29 has been canceled.
The UCI Medical Center is the only Level 1 Trauma Center in Orange County, and transfuses over 1,000 units of blood every month. Cancer patients, people who have experienced a severe trauma such as an auto accident as well as babies in the NICU make up a high percentage of those receiving blood every day. Blood cannot be manufactured, which means they need at least 1,000 people to donate blood each month in order to meet the needs of people in our community.
