Winter weather has caused hundreds of lost donations over the weekend. Please give as soon as able. All types are needed, especially universal donors. For those eligible to donate, please find a Donor Center or mobile blood drive near you at www.bloodcenterimpact.org or by calling (800) 747-5401.
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.
