EATON — Donors can join the fight against cancer during October Breast Cancer Awareness Month by supporting the United Church of Christ community blood drive Thursday, Oct. 12 from 1-7 p.m. in the Social Hall, 113 W. Decatur St., Eaton. Community Blood Center encourages donors to schedule an appointment online at or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “I Fight Cancer – I Give Blood” t-shirt. The t-shirt is charcoal heather gray with a design that features an array of colored ribbons representing awareness for the many forms of cancer. The cancer awareness t-shirt is available at CBC Donor Centers and most CBC mobile blood drives Monday, Oct. 2 through Saturday, Nov. 4.

The “I Fight Cancer – I Give Blood” campaign represents the unique relationship between blood donors and cancer patients. Chemotherapy and other cancer treatments have a harsh impact on blood cells. Transfusions of donated blood and blood products are vital to reducing complications and saving lives.
