DAVID I KNOW YOU’RE ALWAYS DOWN FOR A GOOD PARTY. HOW ABOUT PARTYING WITH PLATELETS? WHITE? THIS IS OUR SEGUE INTO A REALLY GOOD IDEA. THE BLOOD BLANK IS TALKING ABOUT PARTY FOR PLATELETS. HOST OR HOLD A DRIVING YOUR HOME LIKE A TUPPERWARE PARTY ONLY THIS PARTY HELPS SAVE LIVES. AND HERE TO TELL US ABOUT HOW THOSE PARTIES WORK IS KRISTIN THE MARKETING LEAD. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. WHAT A CREATIVE IDEA TO GET PEOPLE INVOLVED AND TO MAKE THIS ALL HAPPEN. IT IS A GENIUS IDEA AND THE CREDIT GOES TO ONE OF OUR PHLEBOTOMISTS WHO IS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT BLOOD DONATION. AND WE ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE DECLINE AND BLOOD DONATIONS. WE HAVE SEEN A 50% DECLINE IN BLOOD DONORS OVER THE PAST 10 YEARS. WHY IS THAT? IT IS ATTRIBUTABLE TO MANY REASONS. BABY BOOMERS ARE GETTING OLDER AND WERE GOING FROM BLOOD DONORS TO BLOOD USERS. PEOPLE ARE BUSY AND SCHEDULES ARE UNMANAGEABLE SOMETIMES AND IT IS DIFFICULT FOR PEOPLE TO FIT IN BLOOD DONATION.

BECAUSE PENNSYLVANIA DOES NOT REGULATE HIS TATTOO FACILITIES IF YOU’VE HAD A TATTOO OR PERMANENT MAKEUP YOU ARE DEFERRED FOR ONE YEAR FROM DONATING. THOSE LITTLE THINGS ADD UP. HOW DO YOU HOST A PLATELET PARTY. WE SHOULD HAVE ONE HERE AT PTL . WE WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO ONE OF OUR DONATION FACILITIES. WE HAVE 10 OF THEM OVER WESTERN PA.

YOUR BLOOD IS TAKEN OUT OF YOUR BODY AND THE PLATELETS ARE SEPARATED FROM IT. THE OTHER COMPONENTS ARE RETURNED SAFELY INTO YOUR BODY. BLACK COMPRISES THREE COMPONENTS YOUR RED BLOOD CELLS, PLASMA, AND PLATELETS. THE PLATELETS ARE USED FOR PEOPLE UNDERGOING CANCER TREATMENT. AND WHEN YOU WERE GOING TO CHEMOTHERAPY, THE CHEMO THERAPY DRUGS KILL THE CANCER CELLS IN YOUR PLATELETS. MANY CANCER PATIENTS NEED PLATELET TRANSFUSIONS. SO THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY NEED. AND YOU AS A PLATELET DONOR GET TO KNOW YOU ARE HELPING PEOPLE WRITE IN OUR COMMUNITY. SO YOUR BLOOD STAINS HERE. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TO EXPLAIN THIS. COME ON DOWN AND HAVE A PARTY. WE WILL WAIT UNTIL YOU HAVE YOUR BABY. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HOST A
