Platelets, though small, are mighty elements of our blood, making up less than 1% of its volume. Platelets are essential for repairing damaged blood vessels and significantly contribute to the healing process, making them particularly vital for individuals battling cancer. Thanks to automated technology, the platelets are isolated for donation, while other blood components are returned to your body.


How Often Can You Donate Platelets?

You can donate platelets every seven days, up to 24 times a year. While donating frequently is not required, we encourage our donors to donate as often as possible. If you make a platelet donation, you must wait three days before making a whole blood donation.


How Can You Help?

· Be Consistent: Donate a minimum of four successful platelet donations each quarter.

· Spread the Word: Share the importance of platelet donations with friends, family, and colleagues.

· Get Involved: Share your donation journey on social media and inspire others to help.
