IVIG Donation

    • June 24, 2017 at 7:23 pm

      My dad died from complications of CIDP (aspiration pneumonia), so I am really wanting to find a center that will take an IVIG donation. I used to donate platelets through the Red Cross, but we had a bit of a parting of the ways about a directed donation to the father of a friend of mine who had leukemia. Then I donated directly to Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY, close to where I live. But that all goes to cancer treatment and research. Does anyone know of a blood donation center anywhere, that will take an IVIG donation for use and research into CIDP????

        Thanks Jim for the link! As luck would have it, I live not far from where this company is headquartered in Williamsville, NY. I also could make an easy and quick detour on the way from work. the only thing is, the site is not clear on whether the headquarters also has a donation site. I sent them an email asking if they do, and hope to hear back from them on Monday. Thanks again!
