A normal donation is split into 4 parts
Fresh Frozen Plasma: the liquid part of the blood
Packed Red Cells: just the red cells with nutrients to keep them alive
Platelets: self explanatory

Not an easy malpractice suit at all. Medical malpractice is incredibly fact dependent and we don't know nearly enough to make this kind of judgement.

The problem with leukemia, and just cancer in general, is that it's not one disease. It's better to think of cancer as a broad scope of diseases with one core connection: cells dividing when they shouldn't. (Granted that's a major simplification)
There are a bunch of leukemias. It's possible they had it for a few months. Maybe it was a different acute leukemia (more likely) or they resisted the same one you had (less likely). Bone pain, easy/excessive bruising, and paleness are all definitely symptoms.
