Don Lykins, (2nd generation ownership of Lykins) died of blood cancer just a few short years ago. Don had several blood transfusions over the course of his treatment, which prolonged his life for many years. Without the generosity of volunteer blood donors, Don would have had a much shorter life. Lykins Energy Solutions remains committed to sponsoring our yearly blood drive in Don’s name.
Your donation does matter. Every donation can save the lives of up to three people. All it takes to volunteer is fifteen minutes to help someone in need.
When thinking about donation blood, please consider these points:
-More than 41,000 blood donations are needed every day.
-Blood cannot be manufactured – it can only come from generous donors.
-Most donated red blood cells must be used within 42 days of collection.
-Donated platelets must be used within 5 days of collection – new donations are constantly needed.
