Your blood type is considered universal for platelets, meaning your platelet donations could save many lives.

Help other AB+ patients with whole blood donations — only 1 in 25 people are AB+!
These are the ideal donation types based on your blood type, but because hospital patient needs change daily, you may be asked to give a different donation type at your next donation appointment.
