COYOTES CAPTAIN SHANE DOAN TO DONATE BLOOD
IN SUPPORT OF UNITED BLOOD SERVICES
THURSDAY, MAY 18, 1:00 P.M.
Shane Doan, Phoenix Coyotes Captain and United Blood Service supporter, will donate blood this Thursday, May 18 at 1:00 P.M. at the UBS Scottsdale Airpark Donor Center, located at 15170 N. Hayden Road (Hayden & 83rd Pl.), to help increase Arizona summer blood supplies.
Doan and his wife Andrea both have the blood type O-, the universal blood type that is one of the rarest. Type O- is needed primarily by trauma patients, premature babies and pregnant women. While only 6% of the population has type O-, it is the only type that can be substituted for any other blood type in emergency situations.
The Phoenix Coyotes and Doan have paired with UBS for many years to help increase Arizona summer blood supplies. Arizona is faced with one of its greatest challenges in meeting patient blood needs this summer. Blood donations severely decline in many parts of the state as high school and college donors leave for the summer and regular donors leave town for cooler climates.
