Carter Blood Care
The FDA announced Tuesday that they’re considering making a change to a blood ban that’s been in place for 30 years. The FDA is proposing easing up on the regulation that prohibits gay and bisexual men from ever donating blood during their lives.
Carter Blood Care confirms that not a single blood donation in North Texas has tested positive for the West Nile Virus.
A blood center that serves Central Texas hospitals says donors are greatly needed due to the massive plant explosion that has injured more than 160 people.
In December, CBS 11 reported about 7-year-old Zach Guillot, a Dallas first-grader who is undergoing chemotherapy for a rare form of leukemia. Each year the Yavneh Academy, an Orthodox Jewish high school in North Dallas, teams with Carter Bloodcare to host a blood drive. This year, the drive will be in Zach’s honor.
