Platelets are small, sticky cells in the blood that control bleeding and are vitally important when treating burn patients, chemotherapy patients, organ transplant recipients and victims of trauma.
Those interested in donating can schedule an appointment at Lifeblood’s donation centers to give platelets. Can we count on you?
