Cumberland Blood Center Needs Type O Blood

Posted February 25, 2004 11:11 a.m. EST

— Cumberland County's blood donor center needs your help.

Technicians say they have had a major drop in type-O blood. Apparently, two patients desperately needed that blood type and went through it very quickly.

The center tries to keep 50 units of type-O blood, but one patient went through almost half of that in one night.

The center is down to 12 units.
