I am so highly blessed and favored to be healthy and able to donate. Every second of everyday a son, a daughter, a mother, or a father needs blood in order to LIVE. Those in need could be my family, friends, neighbors, and community. The cost to give is $0; the value of the gift is PRICELESS!
I have been donating since the early 70’s with a few breaks. I think it is the best way to give back to the community. I was a blood donor until James at Farragut suggested I might try Platelet donation. I give a double ever two weeks and an occasional triple. The crew at Farragut make it an enjoyable experience and are so welcoming. And, I enjoy the time relaxing on a warm bed and watching TV, like a mini-spa day, all the while helping others. Win, win.
I was visiting Dandridge, TN last week, when I saw a blood drive at Holy Trinity church. I am a regular platelet donor in Baltimore. I go every other week. Being away thought I’d stop in for a whole blood donation. The Medic folks were friendly and appreciative for me to drop in. My wife and I, are planning a move to the area next year. I will be a regular once I get to town. read more
