I started when I was in Gr. 12. In 1975, being a girl, I needed my parents consent. I wanted to do what the boys could.
On Monday, 02 Nov, 2020, I'll be making my 366th platelet donation. Every 2 weeks.
I do it to pay it forward, in the event a family member or friend are in need of blood.
I'm on the bone marrow & organ donor registry.
If every able bodied Canadian gave 1x a year, it would be awesome. The nurses are fantabulous.
It's an honor & privilege. It's the right thing to do.
It's in you, to give.
