15,500 individuals have shared a unique gift
Héma-Québec’s holiday campaign continues
“To give blood is to share a unique gift. This gift is free and anonymous, but it shows great generosity for the sick individuals who need it. During the holidays, we can offer health to those who rely on us by giving a bit of our time and our blood,” said Dr. Francine Décary, Chief Executive Officer of Héma-Québec.
Any healthy individual aged 18 years and older who meets Héma-Québec's eligibility criteria can give blood every 56 days, namely six times per year. It should be noted that there is no upper age limit for giving blood in Québec. To receive more information about donating blood, on blood drives locations and schedules, donors can dial 1 800 343-7264 or visit Héma-Québec’s Web site at www.hema-quebec.qc.ca.
Founded in September 1998, Héma-Québec’s mission is to efficiently provide adequate quantities of safe, optimal blood components, substitutes, human tissues and cord blood to meet the needs of all Quebecers; and to provide and develop expertise and services, along with specialized and innovative products, in the fields of transfusion medicine and human tissue transplantation.
