Platelet Donation
During the course of your transplantation, it may be necessary for you to receive platelet transfusions. Platelets help your blood clot when you get a cut or bruise. There is always a need for platelet donors. If friends or family members ask if there is anything they can do for you, suggest that they become platelet donors. Platelet donations take about 1 1/2 hours.
