The yellow bag on the left contains platelets….obtained through donations to the Red Cross blood bank. Unfortunately, there is a nationwide shortage…so the amount Sawyer should be getting is twice the amount he is actually being given. These transfusions keep Sawyer and other cancer fighters alive during treatment. He will need many more units of both platelets and red blood cells during the next several months.
Please please donate if you can… call your local Red Cross and find out where there is a blood drive.

“The American Red Cross is putting out an emergency call. They are in desperate need of blood and platelet donors.
The organization is short 37,000 donations nationwide.” ~ Michel Alameddine Sanchez
