Will the Donor with the Super Platelets Please Stand Up?

First, we want to thank every single one of you who has donated blood or platelets for Ezra. You are all playing an important role in healing Ezra and you have our deepest gratitude. And to everyone who couldn't donate, thank you for spreading the word so much that the donor room has been flooded with donors for Ezra.
Ezra had a platelet transfusion on Saturday that has been holding much longer than his other transfusions. Since he is receiving directed donations, the doctor asked the blood bank to track the transfusion and ask the donor to donate again. We were told that the donor has agreed, but due to HIPAA rules, we aren't allowed to know the identity of the donor, even though that person donated specifically for Ezra (way to go HIPAA). So, donor with the super platelets, if you're reading this, please contact us at help4ezra@gmail.com so we can thank you over and over again!
And we are hoping that other donations will be equally as super! Thanks to all again for hearing the call and answering it.
