On Saturday, October 24 The Donor Center said goodbye to the Gaylord Cary Conference Room, which served as our temporary home since March. It has treated us well during these trying months. Lindsay closed up the room as our last donation in this space!

This:
Patients with blood cancers are often not able to produce their own platelets, which can result in frequent nose bleeds, bruising, bleeding gums and more severe health complications.

Additionally, a low platelet count can delay necessary cancer treatments and prolong the overall treatment plan, so many patients need to receive regular platelet transfusions.

PLEASE CALL US-WE REALLY DO NEED YOUR HELP! 845-8275

We know you can't travel as easily as you once could, but these Donor Center travel pillows are amazing, and we have a small stock of them! Soft, cozy, and they have a snap so they don't fall off. Maybe they could be a Netflix and chill accessory, or work-from-home neck support instead of a travel necessity?

Any donor (who didn't previously receive a pillow) who comments with the story of what started your donation journey, and what keeps you coming back to the Donor Center, will receive a pillow at their next donation! Don't have an appointment? Give us a call to schedule- 716-845-8275 :)

Give Blood, Give Life

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center patients require more than 17,000 blood product transfusions each year. The need for blood and platelets at Roswell Park is enormous as these vital, life-saving blood components cannot be manufactured, and our patients have a consistent need for them. We need dedicated; caring donors to provide Roswell Park patients with the gift of life. By making a donation at The Donor Center at Roswell Park, you are contributing to the life-saving care of a person who needs you! We are grateful to the many loyal donors who continue to support our program and we are eager to welcome new donors!

The Donor Center at Roswell Park was established in 1964. Founded by Dr. Elias Cohen, we are among the three oldest platelet collection facilities in the country. The Donor Center has a professional and very experienced staff, so donors can expect a high level of expertise, rigorous standards of care, compassion, and dignity with each donation.

I feel blessed donating my 166th platelet donation at the end of my 7th year!
Everyone should try to give platelets or blood at least once.It's a wonderful feeling helping someone, even for one more day.You can direct your donation of platelets, if that person is lucky enough to not need them at that time someone else will get them.If anyone in my area wants a ride I go every two weeks would be glad to have company.Roswell has a great staff.Please just think about it.Thank you.
Consider coming and joining me in giving platelets so others can succeed in their battle with cancer. I go every two weeks and can tell you that the nurses & staff will do everyhting in their power to make it an easy experience for you! They will provide snacks, beverages and televisions if you want them. Today a gentleman introduced himself to me and thanked me for helping save his wife's life Nothing can be more rewarding, so if you can give a little time to save a life please do so. The Donor Center number is 845-8275, and if you have any questions I can answer give me a call or send me a PM.
I would like to take this time to say "Happy Mother's day" to all the women that work at the donor center, that help to give hope to a mother that could have one more day with their kids.
