Your blood type is ideal for a Super Reds donation. You donate just red blood cells through an apheresis (ay-fur-ee-sis) donation. This donation results in twice as many red cells for patients, and it allows you to come in to donate two times a year with the same impact as donating whole blood six times a year. Give it a try at your next appointment.
