As we’ve mentioned before on this blog, Platelets play a vital part in the recovery of cancer patients .  Having been encouraged and inspired by stories of patients on the receiving end of these donations Mark and Eoin have decided that they will brave their fear of the needle and have made appointments to have their consultation to see if they are suitable to become platelet donors.  William is unable to donate because he lived abroad for several years when he was a child but would encourage anyone that can give to do so.  We’ll let you know how the lads get on!
