Donate Blood and Platelets

  • Nate Solder and his wife Lexi Allen with Rhonda A. Rutkowski

    Thank you for helping the many Dana-Farber and Brigham and Women's patients who depend upon life-saving transfusions.

  • The FDA has announced a proposed change to its approach to reducing the risk of HIV transmission by blood transfusion. Instead of deferring men who have sex with men from donating for three months since their last sexual contact, the FDA is recommending assessing all donors using gender-inclusive screening questions intended to individualize the assessment of risk. Once the new FDA recommendations are finalized, both the MGH Donor Center and the Kraft Family Blood Donor Center plan to implement them as soon as feasible.

    When you donate blood or platelets at the Kraft Family Blood Donor Center at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women's Hospital, or give blood on board the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Brigham and Women's Hospital Blood Mobile, you are making a life-saving difference for patients in need — right here in our community.

    All of the blood and platelets collected at the Kraft Center and on the Blood Mobile benefit patients at Dana-Farber and Brigham and Women's Hospital.
