  • WHAT: Join NEWS102.3 KRMG, FOX23 and the American Red Cross for our annual Red, White and You Blood Drive  WHEN: June 27 and 28 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m  WHY: We invite you to be an all-American hero and roll up your sleeve and help fill the Missing (blood) Types  WHERE: American Red Cross Tulsa Blood Donation Center just west of HWY169 on 11th St. | Woodland Hills Mall, lower level, Sears Court from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m | St. John Broken Arrow, 1000 W Boise Circle (June 27, from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.) | Nienhuis Community Center, 3201 N. 9th St. (June 28, from 11:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.) NEWLY ADDED LOCATIONS: For those of you that have requested additional locations, we’ve heard you and two more have been added! St. John Broken Arrow, and the Nienhuis Community Center.  GIFTS: All those coming to donate will receive a Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.     The American Red Cross, KRMG and FOX23 invite you to be an all-American hero and roll up your sleeve and help fill the Missing Types at the annual Red, White and You Blood Drive June 27 and 28 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Tulsa Blood Donation Center, 10151 E. 11th St.  Also, Woodland Hills Mall, lower level, Sears Court from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., June 27-28.  Additional Red, White and You blood drives:  All those coming to donate will receive a Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.   This drive is part of the Missing Types campaign to help raise awareness about the unmet need for blood and how donors can help save lives.   Only three out of 100 people in the U.S. give blood. There simply aren’t enough people donating blood to help patients in need.   Yet each day, kids battling cancer, accident victims being raced into emergency rooms, and new moms with complicated childbirths, need lifesaving blood transfusions.    To ensure that lifesaving blood products are available when and where they are needed, the Red Cross urges more individuals to roll up a sleeve and give.   When you give an hour of your time to donate blood, you can help save more than one life.   Donating blood is a simple process and only takes about an hour from start to finish, but the actual donation itself only takes about 8-10 minutes.   To help reduce fear and prepare for a successful blood donation experience, here are six helpful tips to know before rolling up a sleeve:  You don’t need to know your blood type. According to a survey conducted last year on behalf of the Red Cross, 53 percent of people believe they need to know their blood type to donate blood — this is simply untrue.  Hydrate – drink an extra 16 oz of liquid before and after donating.  Enjoy a healthy meal rich in iron and vitamin C before donating – avoid foods high in fat just prior to donation.  Wear comfortable clothing with sleeves that can be raised above the elbow.  Complete a RapidPass on the day of donation, prior to arriving, to save time.  Remember to bring an ID!  CAMPAIGN SURVEY RESULTS   A 2019 national survey, conducted on behalf of the Red Cross, revealed a troubling disconnect between the public’s perception of blood donations and the realities of patient transfusion needs. Those results included:   A third (33%) of the public has never considered that blood may not be available when a loved one needs it.* Just last month, the Red Cross only had just six units of type O blood available for every 100,000 people, but more than twice that is needed every day.   According to a 2019 survey conducted on behalf of the Red Cross, clothes (69%), money (63%) and food (53%) are the primary ways that the public has donated to help others in the past year.* Only three percent of people in the U.S. give blood.   Blood transfusion is one of the most common hospital procedures in the U.S. Yet, “Never really thought about it” was cited in a just released 2019 Red Cross survey as the primary reason (26%) that people do not give blood among those who haven’t given recently.*   More than half (54%) the public believes it is necessary to know their blood type in order to donate blood—this is simply not true. Potential blood donors do not need to know their blood type before giving blood. After individuals give blood, the Red Cross provides each donor their blood type.  As the survey shows, we rarely think about blood until someone we love needs it and it’s missing. Through the Missing Types campaign, the Red Cross seeks to raise awareness for the need for new blood donors to ensure patients continue to receive lifesaving blood transfusions.

  • We open with a producer off-camera asking, “Can you give us a brief explanation of what’s going on with your voice?”  Jamie Dupree, dressed for Capitol Hill, immediately begins writing down his response on his tablet. He looks up at the camera with a smirk and simply replies, “No.”  In essence, the documentary ‘Voice of Reason’ is the story of Jamie Dupree’s return to air. But, Jamie’s story transcends radio waves.  Directed by WSB Videographer Jesse Brooks, ‘Voice of Reason’ is a story of triumph and how in Jamie’s words, despite life’s adversity, “There is no reason to give up.”  [Don’t see the video? Click here] As a Cox Media Group Washington correspondent, Jamie spent more than three decades covering Capitol Hill. Nearly two years ago, his method of communication had to change.  Doctors say a rare neurological condition is making it difficult for his brain to tell his tongue what to do while speaking. Placing a pen in his mouth helps him speak. “It’s hard, but I’m working to come back hard,” Jamie tells WSB.  As it became obvious in the last year that his voice was not coming back, Jamie doubled down his efforts to find answers. And that’s when Mike Lupo at CMG’s corporate headquarters contacted a company in Scotland called CereProc.  With innovative technology, CereProc developed a special voice app that allows Jamie to use a simple text-to-speech program to generate news reports in his old voice.  ‘Voice of Reason,’ which became a labor of love for WSB’s Jesse Brooks, delves deeper into CereProc’s technology and Jamie’s emotional journey over the past few years  The documentary is peppered with moving interviews with Jamie’s colleagues, and even a few candid glimpses of Jamie with his kids.  He’s thankful to all who have wished him well. While the condition has obviously affected his job, that’s not what Jamie says hurts him the most –  “Think about not being able to talk to your kids, or your wife or your father or your friends. While my work is hard and different, life is about a lot more than that.”  Specialists at Emory University in Atlanta are trying a new treatment that will slow down the movement of Jamie’s tongue to make it easier for him to speak. In the meantime, Jamie wants everyone to know his overall health is good.  “Let’s be frank about this whole situation -- this sucks,” Jamie tells producers in ‘Voice of Reason,’ adding through misty eyes, “But there is no reason to quit.  “There is no reason to stop trying. And so I’m not going to stop trying.” >>READ MORE ON JAMIE’S 2019 REGIONAL MURROW AWARD.
