Blood is needed daily, especially as the warmer weather approaches. Most donated blood must be used within 42 days of collection. One donation can help multiple patients. Following collection, red blood cells, plasma and platelets are separated, stored and distributed separately. All blood types are needed, especially O negative, the “universal” blood possessed by only 7% of U.S. residents.
“We are proud to, once again, support LifeStream, another health and wellness leader in the desert” commented Massage Envy Franchise Owner, Holly Lassak. Giving back to the community is an integral part of the local Massage Envy culture. “We believe in helping people feel their best. When people need a little extra help, as with blood, we want to reach out and help fill that need” she concluded.
A blood donation takes 45 – 60 minutes from registration and screening to collection and the post-donation snack. Donors are asked to schedule appointments in advance. Appointments can be made by calling Massage Envy at (760) 904-0123 or stopping by the location of preference.
As part of the event, donors will also receive free cholesterol and marrow screenings and a “Avengers” tee shirt from LifeStream. The three Massage Envy franchised locations will offer donors a chance to “spin the wheel” for prizes and will be providing complimentary stretch sessions and skin analysis.
