Blood and Platelet Donation
Vitalint (Formerly United Blood Services) is looking for individuals interested in donating blood or platelets. Through their apheresis program, people donate platelets to help save the lives of people with cancer. Platelets are the portion of blood that helps control bleeding. Platelet transfusions are vital to successful chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. Unlike whole blood, platelets have a shelf life of only five days and must be constantly replaced, so there is a constant need for donors for this special blood product.
