Directing Your Donation

Often people express the desire to become proactively involved in a loved one's treatment. Did you know that blood and platelet donations are a significant way to make an important difference! Friends and family members can arrange to donate directly for a specific patient.

Platelets are universally compatible with any and all blood types making platelet donation the perfect directed donation. For whole blood donations, both donor and recipient must be compatible blood types. A well-intentioned donor can feel comfortable knowing if unable to donate specifically for their loved one, their valuable blood donation will be directed to another patient right here at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

Directed and General donations are needed every day for patients you may or may not know. Our Donor Center representatives are always available to explain how to schedule a directed or general donation. There is always someone who needs your help. Please consider donating!
