Donating blood is a simple act with a very powerful consequence. Each main blood component - red cells, platelets and plasma - has a distinct characteristic that can be used to help different types of patients heal and enjoy a healthy life. Due to the function of these components, one whole blood donation can save up to three lives!
An overview of the blood components:
Donate 2-Units of Red Cells: If you meet certain requirements, you can donate 2 units of red blood cells, during one donation.
Donate Platelets: Give platelets through apheresis and help supply a special blood component that is needed by many patients.
Donate Bone Marrow: Register to become a potential bone marrow donor and give someone a second chance for life.
