I am grateful to have donated for the first time in my life at age 56 here in Calgary, Alberta. My son who's 22 donated the day before I did and it's something we had being planning on doing together for over a year now. I plan to donate again in the future as I realize it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Plus we prepared by eating as healthy as possible prior to donating and following up our donation as well. I encourage others to do the same and continue to inspire and encourage others to donate blood.
