I make a difference.
This past summer my dad was diagnosed with cancer. It was probably the scariest thing ever for my family and I. I am happy to say that my dad is now in remission and doing great! I am so grateful for his doctors and the many people who supported and helped him in any way. This includes all the people that donated blood. My dad has received 10 pints of blood donated by people like you and me. That is why I donated today. A little bit of pain for me can make a difference for someone else! and it wasn't even that bad at all!
Please, please, please donate! You can make a difference! If you have never done it before and are terrified of needles, it really isn't that bad. The people are really nice and comforting. Bring a friend with you for some moral support if you need it! The people that you can help are going through so much more than you are when you donate. My goal is to donate blood every 3 months! You can do it!
