One of the marks of a friend is showing compassion and care for the needs of others. When our members sacrifice their time and donate blood at the M.D. Anderson Blood Mobile, they share the gift of life with potentially 3 other people. Each unit donated can be broken into components of platelets, plasma and red blood cells, thus benefiting more than one cancer patient.
In 2014, Gloria Dei members and friends contributed 140 units of whole blood, which potentially helped 420 cancer patients.
