WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) spoke on the U.S. Senate Floor regarding the national blood crisis and how this severe blood shortage is affecting patient care in Kansas.

“There is no substitute – no alternative – our nation can turn to in the absence of blood donations,” said Sen. Moran. “The only answer is each of us stepping up to donate, helping to end this crisis and contributing to saving the lives of those in our own communities. This shortage is severe, and it is affecting Kansas health care providers and their ability to care for patients. Kansans pull together in times of need, and I encourage anyone who is able to donate.”
