BLOOD DONATION REQUIREMENT UPDATE

REVISED:  all blood types are acceptable. Please call Mary Thomas to be pre-screened for eligibility. Mary Thomas – Donor Relations Specialist 212-639-3335 thomasfm@mskcc.org

ALL blood types are acceptable and donors do not need to know their blood type.  There are many components evaluated before a donation is released for use by Scarlett, and blood TYPE is only one of them. Please know that your donations will be helping Scarlett even if they are not a match. Their donation will be released for use by other patients many of whom will be children, and a unit from our general pool that is a match for Scarlett will replace theirs.
