Give blood, save a life

Madison Erhardt

It's time to roll up those sleeves and give blood.

June 11-17 marks the 10th annual National Blood Donor Week across Canada. 

"This week we are celebrating our donors that come out year round and we are also inviting new donors to come out and try it for the first time," said Gayle Voyer, with the Canadian Blood Service. 

Angelo Stradiotto, a Kelowna Deputy Sheriff, said this week is close to his heart. 

"My father, who has now passed, was affected by requiring blood while he was at Vancouver General Hospital. Secondly, my son who was premature at VGH for three months would have required blood as well, but didn't end up needing it," Stradiotto said.
