Researchers report, people who received old, stale blood during surgery were nearly a third more likely to die than people who got fresh blood. The findings have prompted calls for blood banks to re-evaluate how they stock and distribute their supply.

It's yet another reason for you to give blood locally to save a life. Our local chapters are always in need. On Tuesday, March 25th, in Bonham you can help donate at the Red River Regional Hospital until 4 p.m. For more details on blood drives in both Texas and Oklahoma, check out these websites:
