Due to low donations and increased patient need, we are urging all eligible volunteer donors, especially those with AB or O blood type, to donate now. Please contact the Blood Center to schedule a time to give at a donor center or mobile blood drive near you as soon as possible. Call (800) 747-5401, or schedule online at www.bloodcenterimpact.org or via our Blood Center Impact App. Thank you!
A child is born with an astonishingly low platelet count (4000, when the normal range begins at 150,000). He receives platelets from a blood donor until his body begins to produce platelets on its own, and his platelet count stabilizes.
Years later, when he learns about the generous, volunteer donor who provided the critical resource that helped save his life, he pays the gift forward, and uses his favorite hobby as the centerpiece for a blood drive.
