MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The American Red Cross is in need of all types of blood donors throughout the winter to maintain a sufficient blood supply for patients in need. 

Blood is needed for emergencies across the country on a daily basis. It is a need Heather Von Glahn knowns well. Glahn was inspired to make the commitment to give blood regularly after her 8 year-old daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. 

“I’ve seen blood save her life at least 10 times. When friends ask what they can do for my daughter, I tell them to donate blood. It matter’s so much,” said Glahn.
