I started donating at Lockort Memorial over 4 years ago. My wife worked and volunteers at the hospital, and I came to know Unyts at a hospital drive. After donating whole blood I received a letter from Unyts to let me know that I was a good candidate for donating platelets.
After finding out more about the procedure and that the product has a short shelf life, I felt the need was greater to donate platelets. I began donating religiously every 2 weeks. I enjoy the 2 hours with the staff. The joke at my house is that I donate every 2 weeks for a couple of hours to give my wife some peace and quiet.
I know that all the products that Unyts collects stay right here in WNY. That matters to me. I want to donate where it will do the most good.
Mr. McKenna has completed 2 straight years of 24 donations in one year. What an amazing guy!
