What are Platelets and why are they important? 

Platelets are a component of blood that help control bleeding and bruising.
They are very important for heart surgery patients, burn victims,
premature babies, and especially cancer patients.

Platelets have the shortest shelf life of all blood components,
lasting only 7 days after donation. That means they are in
constant demand for life-saving treatments.

Assuming they meet all other general eligibility requirements,
individuals can safely donate platelets every eight (8) days.
