Most people who know me know I have been donating blood for 53 years and I have a total of 215 pints donated so far.
I stopped for a short time because I had tumors on my bladder that had to be removed. When I completed the last of my follow-up treatments, I asked if would be OK if I donated blood again. They said it would so I called the Red Cross in Fort Wayne and set up my appointment to donate the next week at the Eagles.
I was glad to be able to give blood and help people in need again. It has always been very important to me to be able to help save lives.
This next pint will be 27 gallons for me. I only hope that I will be around to give a lot more.
My son and sister are also blood donors.
