Patriots Charitable Foundation will host
the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Brigham and Women’s Hospital Blood Mobile—the
traveling extension of the Kraft Family Blood
Donor Center—for a series of blood
drives during this year’s Patriots Training Camp.
All donors are welcome to enjoy Patriots Training Camp
and Fan Zone prior to or following their appointment and each donor will
receive a Patriots gift bag.
The Patriots Charitable Foundation has a long history of
advocating for volunteer blood and platelet donations, both at the Kraft Family
Blood Donor Center and throughout the region, encouraging all eligible fans to
consider making a life-saving difference. Volunteer blood and platelet
donors are the only source of these blood products, which are essential for
people going through cancer treatment and many other critically ill patients in
need of life-saving transfusions.
All blood drives will be open to the
public. Due to space and time constraints, advance appointments are
strongly recommended and can be scheduled by emailing BloodDonor@partners.org with the
subject heading “Patriots” and two preferred donation times. In general, to give
blood, donors should be at least 17 years old, 110 pounds or heavier, and in
good health, and must bring a valid photo ID to their appointment. To
learn more about eligibility and the donation process, please call the Kraft
Family Blood Donor Center at 617-632-3206 or visit www.dana-farber.org/blooddonation.

Committed to the communities we serve, the Dana-Farber
Cancer Institute’s Blum Van will be visiting beaches across Massachusetts to
provide free skin cancer education and screenings this summer. A dermatologist
will be on board to provide free full-body examinations and address any
skin-cancer related concerns. Participants will receive educational materials,
sunscreen, lip balm with SPF, key chains with energy beads that change color in
response to UV rays, and Red Sox baseball caps (while supplies last).
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Blum Van, a 39-foot van, is
designed to bring Dana-Farber’s expertise in the struggle against cancer to the
public, through early detection cancer screenings and several cancer education/awareness
and prevention initiatives. Full body examinations will be provided by Brigham
and Women’s Hospital dermatologists. Add to Calendar
