Following a reduction in regional air transport, the Cairns donor centre has temporarily moved to plasma only collections. However, this hasn't been an issue for our Director, Grant Stone, a regular plasma donor who recently reached the milestone of 136 donations. With clients that require monthly plasma transfusions, it's a cause close to our business and our hearts!
What is plasma?
Plasma forms 55% of our blood and is the liquid that transports red and white blood cells and platelets.
Every donation saves up to three lives! It can be used in a multitude of ways, from serious burns to cancer and nerve diseases.
