    I have given blood for as long as I can remember.  I suppose it happened when I was in my early teens.  I had always given.  The company my mother worked for had a policy that if you donated that you would be covered if you needed blood.  When my mother was had cancer and...

    Yup. I Do!

    So far I've only done it once. I gave blood at school. I was awesome at it. It only took like 5 minutes, for the blood to be taken out. I'm an excellent blood giver.  I'll probably start doing it on a regular basis.

    One of my good friends is a doctor.  She makes sure that every time there is a big blood drive that she notifies me and all of her friends to give blood.  I did and felt happy to do it.  I even got my gallon card for donating so many times.  It is a wonderful feeling to know...

    Give Till It Hurts…………

      I’m a blood donor been doing it for years. Although I haven’t done it this year, I really should fix that, blood donation is essential if you can give blood I really think you should. I don’t understand why people who can do it don’t.

    O Positive, CMV negative.

    Valuable blood. My local blood bank harasses me every single week, asking when I would like to donate next. I prefer to give platelets as apposed to whole blood, as it doesn't send me into mild hypovolemic shock.
