Yeah! Got permission to have a long lunch on Friday so that I can donate platelets! There is an urgent need for platelet donation in the NYC/NJ area due to Sandy.
If you are in the area and eligible for donation, please call 1-800-933-2566 or go to www.nybloodcenter.org/platelet.
Platelets have a much shorter life span than whole blood, and are always in demand. If you have any questions about what it’s like to donate platelets feel free to ask!
