ANYBUDDY CAN DONATE
Blood as it is collected from the donor via a vein is almost never used directly for blood transfusion. Patients often only need a specific part of the blood. A patient only receives the component that he requires. This prevents unnecessary side-effects. The remaining components can be used by other patients. This allows your blood to help more patients.
