The goal of the UCLA Blood & Platelet Center is to provide patients with safe blood collected from volunteer donors. Like all other facilities in the nation that collect blood, we must follow FDA rules about who may donate. You may have heard that certain conditions like cancer, heart problems, stroke, asthma and diabetes keep you from donating, however, this is not necessarily true. Our staff can help evaluate your specific medical questions.
