My father was diagnosed with thrombocytopenia about ten years ago. His platelet count was around 15000 and he needed to replace the missing 200000 plates twice during his hospital stay. For ten years he had been fine but I just found out today after asking him the name of his disorder that it may be back. Last year I gave platelets and plasma 6 times. This year I hope to give more. Without help from all everyone's donations nationwide people like my father would not have the fortune of spending more time with their loved ones. Thank you my fellow donors.
