While the upcoming holiday weekend is a break for most of us-- it's anything BUT for the American Red Cross.
It's in desperate need of blood donations.
Meanwhile, new safeguards designed to make the blood supply safer could also cause it to dwindle.

Roanoke College volleyball coach Kelly Perrine thought she netted the opportunity of a lifetime when she spent a semester in Spain eight years ago. Now, that trip is coming back to bite her.
She can no longer donate blood.

Kelly is what the American Red Cross calls a risky donor.
Beginning September 17th, the American Red Cross will turn away any donor who spent more than three months in the United Kingdom or six months in Europe since 1980.

Safe and adequate.
Critics charge the plan could eliminate as much as 9 percent of the current donor pool.

[IN Q=The price of blood is also]

((JUSTIN McLEOD/REPORTING: THE PRICE OF BLOOD IS ALSO GOING UP. THIS SUMMER, THE AMERICAN RED CROSS RAISED THE PRICES ON BLOOD IT SELLS TO HOSPITALS.

[OUT Q=you have done]

((NAT SOUND OF PUTTING BLOOD IN CONTAINER; 19:33:34))
New guidelines and better testing of blood forced the Red Cross to raise their prices.
Area hospitals say it's too early to determine whether that cost will be passed on to the patient.
Some believe its a small price to pay to ensure mad cow stays away.
