Both A Blood Types Are Always Needed
Because A-negative is relatively rare, it’s important that donors with this blood type donate on a regular basis. You can double your impact by Powering Up to a Power Red donation.
Blood type A-positive donors can make the biggest impact by donating platelets, which most often help cancer patients. Platelets must be transfused within 7 days, and there is a constant need to replenish the supply.
Of course, all blood types are needed for patients, and the rarest type is the one not on the shelf when someone needs it. Schedule your donation today, and encourage a friend of any blood type to join you!
