It Comes Full Circle

I became a donor many years ago while still in high school and gave whenever I was able to, but mostly back then to get out of class. Several years later when I was in university in the Fall of 1991 I was in a very serious car accident in which I sustained significant injuries, including serious blood loss from internal bleeding. I was later told that in total I received somewhere near 30 units of blood before it finally started to clot and not flow right out of me again. I have so many unknown generous donors to thank for what was truly the Gift of Life for me. These days I continue to be a donor as one way of showing my thanks — as often as I am able to. Greg
