I have AB+ blood type, did you know that AB donors are universal plasma donors?\n\nPlasma is used to help people suffering from burns, shock, trauma, and other medical emergencies. The proteins and antibodies in plasma are also used to create therapies for rare chronic conditions, such as autoimmune disorders and hemophilia.\n\nRoll up your sleeves and help out! All blood types are needed, all you have to do is make a donation!\n\n#blooddonation #plasmadonor #newyorkbloodcenter #nybloodcenter @newyorkbloodcenter
