October Darke County Area Blood Drives
October Donors can help fight cancer

DARKE COUNTY, Ohio – Donors can join the fight against cancer during October Breast Cancer Awareness Month by supporting the community blood drives in Darke County communities. Community Blood Center encourages donors to schedule an appointment online at or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “I Fight Cancer – I Give Blood” t-shirt. The t-shirt is charcoal heather gray with a design that features an array of colored ribbons representing awareness for the many forms of cancer.   The cancer awareness t-shirt is available at CBC Donor Centers and most CBC mobile blood drives Monday, Oct. 2 through Saturday, Nov. 4.

The “I Fight Cancer – I Give Blood” campaign represents the unique relationship between blood donors and cancer patients.  Chemotherapy and other cancer treatments have a harsh impact on blood cells. Transfusions of donated blood and blood products are vital to reducing complications and saving lives.
