I began giving blood while I was in high school. Illinois passed a law allowing 17 year olds to donate with parental permission. Our Medical Careers Club showed a movie explaining the entire process and I was the student council chair signing up students. That was over 37 years ago. I continued to donate during my time in the Air Force and gave many gallons while living in Alaska. It's such an easy procedure and I am honored to be able to share a gift of life with others.
