Blood shortage in Palermo, appeal for 500 donors during summer months.

The article explains that the Cervello Hospital in Palermo is in need of around 500 more blood donors for the months of July, August, and September in order to avoid delays in blood transfusions for patients in need. The association Linfa Rossa, Donatori Sangue Palermo Odv, has made an appeal to citizens to donate blood before going on vacation, as the waiting time for a transfusion can be up to 20 days in the summer. The article highlights the importance of having fresh blood available for maximum effectiveness in transfusions, especially for chronic patients at the hospital. It also emphasizes the impact of delayed transfusions on the health and well-being of patients, particularly those with thalassemia and sickle cell anemia. The appeal is directed at regular blood donors and residents of Palermo aged 18 to 65 who are in good health and willing to donate blood at the Cervello Hospital by calling and scheduling an appointment.
