The Red Cross sent me a birthday greeting noting that a great way to celebrate life is to share it! Please join me, if you can.
I donated platelets when I could in honor of Mitch Krauss, my late father-in-law, who received many transfusions while getting treatment for leukemia. Now I give plasma, which seems easier on my body and is also needed for my type.
There are so many reasons people can’t donate — for their own health or because they have been exposed to disease (sometimes just by living in a place where problems were prevalent). So if you can give and haven’t gotten around to it lately, here’s an easy way to sign up.
