. . . World Blood Donors Day!

Unfortunately, because of health issues, I am ineligible to give blood. I whole-heartedly encourage those who are eligible to do so whenever they can.

My nephew was 3 years old when he was diagnosed with leukaemia. At 6 he went into remission, and at 11 he was declared cancer free. He is now a strapping 22 year old. With the generosity of many blood donors, he wouldn’t have survived his treatment.

Give blood if you can, you never know whose life you could be saving.
