I do a Blood drive with a friend Dan Dec & June for our company Zimbrick of Madison. I had a kidney transplant on December 30, 2011. All went well and it has been now over a year. I asked my surgent before he started the procedure if I need blood, I want it from the Red Cross. His reply was of course we get it from the Red Cross. The UW hospital gave me a new start. I became a volunteer after recovery for them as well at the Dialysis clinic. Even though I can't give, I feel blessed to help others this gift of life. I recevied my 10 year award from American Red Cross in 2012. I know the importance for what I do for I am a US Air force Vet. Lloyd
