DONATING FOR THOSE IN NEED

Thomas Hughes donates platelets Friday at the Florida Blood Service in Hudson. Hughes started donating blood four years ago when his fiance needed platelets because of cancer. He now donates every other week for whoever needs it. Phlebotomist Diane Beards, right, said many donors give platelets every two weeks. Officials at Florida Blood Service, which serves local hospitals, say they need all types of whole blood and platelets.
