Donor Stories

Lynn Bloxham’s first blood donation was in Alaska where he served in the U.S. Navy in 1971.  He said, “My first experience could not have been better.  It felt good to help and it felt good physically.  Each time I donate I feel great!” 

A young civilian suffered severe injuries in an elevator accident on Kodiak Island.  Although the Navy maintained a hospital on Kodiak, the severity of the civilian's injuries required he be flown to Anchorage.  Blood was needed to sustain him during his flight. The hospital asked the only radio station on the island to make an announcement to all individuals with A-negative blood. These donors were asked to immediately report to the Navy hospital to make a donation.  Bloxham heard the announcement while at work in a Naval Base repair shop.  He explained, “I had a ‘conditioned’ fear of needles because of my father's ‘absolute’ fear of needles.  The fact that my mother made frequent blood donations was instrumental in my willingness to respond.”  My fear of donating was overcome by the desire to help this individual.

Donating blood has been an enjoyable experience for Bloxham.  He began to donate routinely in 1975 and, today Bloxham, of St George, UT, is a regular donor who tries to give about every eight to 10 weeks.
