A Message from SCABB’s President

Dearest South Central Members and loved ones,

The senseless acts of terror that plague our World and, specifically, our South Central members, have influenced so many lives in ways we have yet to identify. From Orlando to France and the recent attacks on law enforcement in Dallas and Baton Rouge, our deepest sympathies are with those whose lives have been forever altered and we pray for your comfort in this time of loss. Many of our South Central Institutional and Individual members were personally and professionally affected by these tragedies. However, in the dark hours following each and every brutal event, our member blood banking professionals demonstrated great resolve and compassion as a foundation for their communities, always serving tirelessly and selflessly. Words cannot express our gratitude for your sacrifice and commitment, thank you for all you do. Always so much more than providing blood products, though sometimes it is easy to forget. It is during these times of need that we stand taller, stronger together as we rebuild one day at time.  We are unified as members of the South Central Association of Blood Banks and through all our struggles and challenges, we forge ahead. In our ongoing spirit of collaboration, lean on your fellow South Central Members, we will persevere. In the words of Maya Angelou, “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”

We will come out of this together, stronger for having stayed the course.
