People Need People | Versiti Blood Center of Illinois

There is no substitute for blood, organs, tissue, or bone marrow. They are precious. They are perishable. And the need for them is vital.

Any one of us might need a transfusion, at any time. We rely on one another to meet that need. But on the other side of that common vulnerability, there is uncommon strength. As a partnership of blood centers, we're far stronger together than we are alone.
