    • Call for Platelet Donations

      We’re seeking platelets donations for one of our beloved former Chapter President’s Jeff Burck, CPM who recently learned he has Leukemia.

       

      Donating platelets is a lot like donating blood. It is an easy process but may take up to two hours. Any blood type can donate and the donation goes directly to Jeff.

       

      If you or someone you know can help, please contact Brookfield Properties (Linda at 713-651-1515) first as they are maintaining a collective calendar. Then, you’ll schedule your donation with the MD Anderson Blood Bank. Once you are all set with MD Anderson, you’ll need to alert Brookfield. Every donation is important and appreciated!

       

      Reference Jeffrey Burck MDA # 1097608 when you donate.

       

      To Give Platelets: When donating platelets only, you must be off of all Ibuprofen products, Aspirin, Motrin, Advil, Nuprin, Aleve and herbal products containing Garlique, Ginseng, Ginko or Ginger, for 48 hours prior to donation. Unlike whole blood donors, those who give platelets can give again within 48 hours.
