Nora needs blood & platelets

Nora needs blood & platelets

It is important that all donors meet the eligibility criteria. The criteria for whole blood and platelets is the same. You can access donation criteria: http://www.mskcc.org/blooddonations

All blood types are acceptable. Directed donations must be made in our Donor Room. Whole blood donations take about one hour and can be stored for twenty five days after testing. Platelets take approximately 2½ hours for the entire process and can be stored for only five, two of which are used for testing. Therefore it is important to spread out the donations so they do not all expire on the same dates. Small groups can be arranged.

Please contact me if you require any additional information for this worthy effort. Your willingness to distribute an appeal to let people know about the need for blood and platelets is greatly appreciated.
