Together, we are lifeline

Rotary Blood Services - Symbol



Our story is changing 

Blood

for Life


Cancer patients, transplant recipients, accident victims. For these people and so many more, a timely transfusion of blood can be the lifesaving difference.

Half of all Canadians will either need blood or know someone who needs it. The need is constant. Book now to donate blood. It’s something you can do today to ensure someone else is waking up healthy tomorrow.

Stem Cells

for Life


Patients with leukemia, lymphoma, aplastic anemia. Over 80 diseases and disorders can be treated with a stem cell transplant.

Fewer than 25 per cent of recipient patients who need stem cell transplants find a compatible donor in their own family. The rest must rely on the sincere generosity of unrelated donors who have committed to being part of Canada’s lifeline. 

Plasma

for Life


Burn victims, trauma patients, people with certain brain and blood disorders. For many patients with a wide range of diseases, plasma can save or improve their lives.

Plasma is the protein-rich liquid in our blood that helps circulate red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets throughout our bodies. There is a fast-growing need for products made with plasma and it’s a simple process to donate.

Organs & Tissues

for Life


Patients needing a new kidney, a heart transplant, a skin graft. One organ donor can save up to eight lives; tissue and eye donors can improve the lives of up to 75 more.

Register your decision to become a donor and talk to your loved ones about organ and tissue donation. Encourage others to register as well. Because we can all be the reason – the connection – that keeps Canadians living.
