New platelet and plasma donors are in high demand, especially those with blood types A, AB, or B positive. CBC is offering new opportunities to donate platelets and plasma at an increasing number of community blood drives.
Platelets are the cells that control bleeding while plasma is the fluid that carries nutrients and proteins throughout the body. Both are vital for the treatment of cancer, trauma, organ transplant, and burn patients. Find out more at www.GivingBlood.org or talk to an apheresis specialist at (937) 461-3220.
