I am presently one pint short of pint short of 14 gallons. My usual reason for not being able to give is my iron count. I always feel so bad that I can't give. They say I am deferred but I am truly rejected. I keep trying though. I started giving as soon as I could with my father taking me and signing so I could donate. I feel it a privilege to be able to donate blood. My daughter is carrying on the tradition and I am very proud of her for doing it.
