I started giving blood at a work blood drive. I started getting calls to return and learned that I was A Positive and CMV Negative, which meant my blood could be used for premature infants and persons with a poor immune system. I always thought that if it were my 2 little ones, their needs would be met. Now I have grandkids and still feel the same. I have no money to give and I am no longer CMV-, but still give platelets regularly because I feel good about helping The Red Cross save lives.
