MDA needs platelets and blood

Andrea needs platelets and did not receive them today because MDA has had so many surgeries. If anyone could donate blood or platelets they need to call:
713-792-4531 to make sure they can take their blood when they are ready to give.
Then they can go to MDA, 1515 Holcombe, enter at MD Anderson Blvd, park in garage 10, garage crosswalk to MDA hospital is on level 3, ride escalator or elevator down to 2nd floor MDA which is near Elevator A. Diagnostic Center is right there. Please be sure to designate blood or platelets given to Andrea Martin.
Thanks so much.

Jim was a platelet donor for Bobby when he had Leukemia. Can he give here at the United Blood Service in Mississippi and get it to MDA? Jim would be glad to do this. I can check on this end.

Hi Kathy, Bob, Andrea and J,

Sorry I haven't checked in with you lately. I was out of town for 10 days. I just read your blog and will sign up to give platelets today or tomorrow. Thanks for keeping us posted. Let me know if there's anything you need. I'll also pass along your request to my prayer team.

I have sent an e-mail to several people we know in SugarLand/Houston for your request for platelets and asked them to forward onto others. I hope we can meet the need from this point on. It is the least we can do to ensure that Andrea gets what she needs. We will also send some mighty prayers tomorrow at our weekly Bible study.

Andrea and family,

You are all in our prayers constantly. I wish we were closer to be able to give platelets. I pull up your blog almost everyday and send many prayers your way. Stay strong and it will be time to be on your wake board on Canyon Lake soon!
