If you have been told previously by The Blood Center of Central Texas or another blood center that you should never donate blood, you can still help save lives by spreading the word about the importance of blood donation. Please forward this message to family, friends and associates and encourage them to become life saving blood donors. If you recently made a blood donation, or if you have already scheduled an appointment to donate blood, please accept our thanks on behalf of the patients whose lives you may have touched. If you have any questions about donating, please contact The Blood Center of Central Texas at whocandonate@inyourhands.org or 512-206-1108.

Don't forget there are other ways to donate!
