Just because COVID-19 hit, doesn’t mean people from all walks of life had other health issues/complications go away. People across our area still suffer from:*

Cancer

Ideal Donation Type

  • Platelets donation, because certain cancers and cancer treatments prevent patients from producing their own.

Ideal Blood Type

  • A positive, A negative, B positive, O positive, AB positive and AB negative
Physical Trauma

Ideal Donation Type

  • Power Red, because red cells carry oxygen throughout the body and are frequently given to trauma and surgery patients.
  • AB Elite plasma donation, because AB plasma is needed to help stop bleeding. Call 1-800-RED CROSS to make an AB Elite appointment.

Ideal Blood Type

  • For Power Red: O positive, O negative, B negative, A negative
  • For AB Elite: AB positive, AB negative
Sickle Cell Patients

Ideal Donation Type

  • Whole blood, especially from African-American donors, because sickle cell patients require multiple transfusions and must be very closely matched to the donor’s blood type, usually from the same racial and ethnic group.
