THE STORY:

One platelet donation can be worth from 12 to 18 whole blood donations.

You can donate up to 24 times per year. If you are a platelet donor, you can still make regular whole blood or double red cell donations. Both gifts are vitally important to patients with life threatening diseases.

Platelets are a vital element of cancer and organ transplant treatments, as well as many surgical procedures as they help prevent massive blood loss. A single platelet donation can provide enough platelets for a full therapeutic dose for a patient in need. In fact, some platelet donations yield enough platelets for two or three therapeutic doses. By contrast, it takes four to six whole blood donations to produce a single therapeutic dose.
