i started giving blood when i was 16yr. my first time giving blood, i was a sophomore in high school and scared to death of needles. i got in the chair, they marked my arm and i started crying. i was sooo scared and i almost didn't do it but i toughed it out and did it. i found out i was O+ which is a universal blood type. it felt great to know that i can help save anyone's life and i have given blood 3x a year every sense that first day!!!
