Good for you. Be proud of yourself for donating blood. With the surgeries I have had, the total amount of blood I have received is equivalent to a total of 12 visits from people like you who took the time to donate.
I joined the bone marrow registry a few years ago for that reason. You taking the time IS saving lives, thank you.
