We have an immediate need for all negative blood types, especially Type O. Please contact the Blood Center to schedule a time to donate at a Donor Center or mobile blood drive as soon as possible. Call (800) 747-5401, or look up blood drive information on line at www.bloodcenterIMPACT.org. 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.
