GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) - The summer months are always tough for the Red Cross. Fewer donors are giving because of summer vacations and with schools on break there's fewer drives, but recently the Red Cross has reached a critical low for a certain blood type.
Type O negative blood is always in high demand because it can be transfused to patients with any blood type, especially in emergency situations.
The statistics are startling. Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood.
