Our patients have a consistent need for blood products, and donors are the only ones who can meet that need.

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center transfuses more than 17,000 blood products each year. We are grateful to the many loyal donors who continue to support our program and we are eager to welcome new donors. We rely on donations from friends, family members, good citizens, and others to ensure there is enough for everyone.
