Those who have never donated platelets may walk in for a 10-minute prescreening process that will determine their eligibility to give platelets.  Persons will get the test results in two to three days.

Platelets aid in the clotting process to prevent or stop bleeding.  Platelet donations go to critically ill children and adults who are being treated for leukemia, other cancers, surgery, burns, bone marrow and organ transplants.
