When I was in my mid 50s i went with my daughter to donate at a church blood drive, we both donated and that started it! We went to a regular blood donation center next, there i met a man who had just given his 40th gallon!! He had been in WWII and new the value of blood donations. What a kick in the rear to me. to think all those years i could have given and didnt. I have now given just over 5 gallons and am sorry i didnt start sooner. im almost 70 now and know my ability to give will soon run out, due to health,meds or the final reward. As you read this I would encourage you to donate blood as often as possiable. The life you save might be Mine!!
