You must be in good health
you must weigh at least 110 pounds (with some exceptions).
You must provide information about your health and your blood pressure, heart rate and temperature will be taken. Additionally your blood will be checked for anemia.
You must be at least 17 years of age (if texas permits 16 year olds to donate, then one of your parents will need to read the student's guide to blood donation and sign the parent/guardian consent form. A signed consent form is needed for each blood donation.
Hemophilia is a reason to exclude blood. Since you have von willebrand's blood disorder type 2, I do not know if they would lump your blood into a categroy of hemophilia and like disorders or if it would be accepted. I suggest that you contact who ever is running the blood drive so that they can look into this before hand. Good luck. ...Read more
