    Nice! Lost my ability to donate because of cancer, so I became a firefighter/paramedic instead.

    Well said, Dad!
    They won’t let me donate anymore – because I lived in Europe for too long, can you believe it! They’re afraid I might have mad cow lying dormant inside me. I went in to donate one day, and they said, sorry, you’re blacklisted.

    did you know that the US Armed Forces are going to bloodless
    medicine? It has been proven that patients have fewer complications, and recover more quickly without blood

    Scheduled to give tomorrow. 80+ donations. Not bad for a person who is terrified of needles. Although, I do tend to get chatty before giving blood which makes the technicians concerned that I may pass out. :-)

    Sadly it is true. Read up on it. I cannot donate whole blood or anything else due to malaria, which I got here in the U S.

    BECAUSE Amend is no longer doing dallies, and these particular strips send a message to the next generation of how important donating blood can be.

    I’ve donated blood in the past and just recently, too. It is a bit scary when they put the needle in, but it’s also worth it since you know that someone out there, who has the same blood type, is going to get that blood in a transfusion that will most likely save their life.

    Yeah, I get nervous, too, and I look away when it comes time. Plus I take a book with me to read, which helps pass the time.

    Donate blood regularly, the hospitals are always short on supply. Also, ask your doctor about being put on the bone marrow registry. Our health care system does not cover it automatically, but it is necessary as well and will eventually cut down on overall costs for cancer and leukemia treatments. My wife had to find a donor from Germany, and the international transport of the cells add significantly to the cost. Most of Europe and Canada provide free bone marrow testing, so we need to get as many people on the registry here as possible. It will save lives and money in the long run.

    When my mother donated blood, the donor company didn’t respect her privacy at all. They kept calling her to come back and give more frequently, regardless of how inconvenient it was. I’m not going to give any blood until I know for sure the donor company respects privacy.

    gave at work and military whenever they had a drive, or when called by Red Cross, until told I couldn’t because of medications I take.

    My husband donated blood through Red Cross for 40 years and had to stop due to a medicine for heart issues.
