“I donate platelets because I was on the receiving end of the donations.In October 2009 I had a bleeding ulcer, and ended up in emergency surgery. I was in the hospital for a month fighting infection. My white blood count was down and my blood wouldn’t clot.I ended up getting several units of blood, platelets and frozen plasma. --Samantha Johnson, platelet donor
