Directed Blood Donation

I received the paperwork for blood donation from Children's Hospital. Here is the scoop.......Travis is O+ which means he can receive the following:

*Packed Red Blood Cells from O+ or O- donors (can only donate once prior to surgery)
*Platelet/Plasma from O+, O-, A+, A-, B+, B- (can donate every 48 hours/4 weeks respectively)

O+ donors would be the best possible match but he can still receive from those listed above. If you are healthy and interested in donating blood for Travis' surgery please let me know ASAP.

I am trying to arrange for a donation spot in SD as well as Murrieta.



  1. What a wonderful idea. I donated blood for the first time after Hope was born. I didn't realize what an easy thing it is and how much of a benefit it provides to so many people.

  2. Deb is O+ and I am A+...let us know what we need to do.


  3. My daughter Caty is 0+ and would like to donate. You can get a hold of me at school.

  4. I am B+ so I can do the platlet donation. Let me know. Diane Furtak
