Tis' the season of giving and donating!

Saturday, December 27, at 9 a.m. CT, director of the Mayo Clinic Blood Donor Center Justin Kreuter, M.D., will join us to talk about the importance of donating blood no matter where you live.  What's involved, does it take a lot of time and does it hurt?  Is there a certain time of year when blood is in short supply?  Is there an artificial substitute for blood?  What happens to the blood we donate, and how it is used to save lives? We'll find out on the next Mayo Clinic Radio.  Please join us.

Myth or Fact: I can't donate blood because I had cancer.
