Prior to that time, people in need of blood had to rely on friends and relatives. In addition to ensuring a plentiful supply of whole blood, Blood Assurance also distributes plasma and blood platelets, primarily to cancer patients. It was the parents of a cancer patient who established the Blood Assurance Foundation. The foundation gives scholarships to local high school seniors every year.
