I Love Giving Back!Ever since I was 17, I've tried to give blood every 10-12 weeks. I have a very large family and I know that with some of my brothers' reckless behavior, they will inevitably need my blood. I am O Rh D- so therefore a "universal donor". Plus, how can you refuse Sunny D and cookies?!
Also, I had a very good friend who passed away from cancer at the tender age of 27 and through an act of sheer friendship, she needed my blood and I was happy to oblige. My blood kept her alive (or so the doctors claim) long enough for her to enjoy her last few weeks on this earth :) It made me a very happy camper that I was able to contribute to someone who has done so much for me :)
