With a platelet donation you can have a powerful and immediate impact on a cancer patient’s life! Your platelet donation is transfused to a patient within a week and could help keep them alive. Platelets are most often used to help cancer patients, but also help patients with blood disorders or those undergoing open-heart surgery and organ transplants. Because platelets must be transfused within a week, platelet donors are constantly needed to keep the supply stable.Make Appointment Now
What are platelets?
Platelets are our most delicate blood component, but they perform a vital job. They are tiny cells that help your blood clot when you are bleeding and constantly fix tears in your circulatory system. When platelets are low, serious or life-threatening bleeding can occur.
