Why I Give Platelets



June 11, 2013
I started out donating while in the Air Force. My donating was sporadic until the company I was working for started having regular drives. About 8 years ago, I was "talked into" trying apheresis. My platelet concentration is pretty high. I have been doing platelets since and making triples regularly. My Wife went thru breast cancer and we know so many people who have cancer and need platelet donations. I am happy God has given my body the ability to make a lot of platelets so I can help others.
