Blood and Platelet Donation
Please, if you are able, donate blood or platelets (double reds). For most, the process is fairly harmless and quick. The benefits and health you are giving is priceless.
What I expected to be a regular 29 week checkup and glucose test turned into a transfer and overnight stay at a large hospital with high risk specialists. I was given a platelet transfusion, likely one of many to come.
Normally, people have 150-450 thousand platelets. I have 4 thousand.
Please donate. Those of us in need are eternally grateful.
