You may have questions and even some common misconceptions about donating blood. Get the facts, and let us walk you through it.

Can I donate?

Many people think they cannot donate blood before they even try. That's often because of myths like being too old, taking medications, or having a physical condition that prevents donation. In most cases, it's not true! More often than not, you can donate even if you've recovered from a heart attack, cancer, have diabetes, or are taking many different types of medications. Get the facts. Our medical team can also confidentially answer specific questions you have about donating.
