Central Texas Hero Spotlight: Elijah St. John

Image of Elijah St. JohnElijah St. John has been donating platelets with the Baylor Scott & White Blood Center since 2014. After a doctor recommended apheresis donation, Elijah decided to give it a try—and he has been a loyal platelet donor ever since. "It's important to think of how donating helps people in need," Elijah said. "This is a life force that we can freely give to other people."

Platelet donors like Elijah help patients who are fighting cancer, traumatic injuries, and chronic diseases. To request more information on platelet donation or schedule a platelet donation appointment, call 254.724.2933.
