United Blood Services, platelet association host recruitment week

Between Sunday through Thursday, the National Platelet Association and the United Blood Services of Reno and Carson City are sponsoring National Platelet Recruitment Week. If you'd like to become a platelet donor, or just learn more about the process, contact United Blood Services in Reno at 324-6454, and in Carson City at 887-9111. Become a hero and find out more about being a platelet donor.

Platelets are a blood product, and platelets donated by healthy volunteers are vital in the supportive care of patients who are undergoing treatments for cancer, aplastic anemia, leukemia and other medical conditions.
