Central TX- need b+/- platelets for a NICU baby!

Posting for a friend...She gave birth to a 28 weeker about 2 weeks ago now. He is in need of platelets and the hospital OUT and waiting for donations. They are asking for donations from friends and family of those with b+/- blood type. If you know anyone who can help, please pm me! He is the most critical and the top of the list for donations. Platelets have a 5 day shelf life, and you may call to make an appointment M-F. Help this wee one if you can please!


Donations will need to be made at Scott and White hospital in Temple TX

My husband gave B+ platelets today in San Antonio! I am so glad he could help! We got a call this week to schedule his donation, not sure if it's for your friend or not.

either way, its great that he can and did! So many people don't and its not a big deal for a healthy person, but can be the difference in a sick persons life.
here's the moms blog if anyone would like to pass it on or just send up a prayer http://stanfordfamilyblog.blogspot.com/

I'm not sure to be honest with you. I am now in Virginia (we're military) but we lived there for 5 years and the mama is a friend from a playgroup i was in. I gave birth to our middle child at S&W and loved the place. I will pass on the suggestion of the platelet centers in austin. thanks!
