    Talking Cancer, Transplants etc

    I volunteer with the American Red Cross with their blood drives. Today I donated platelets. I encourage all who can to donate whole blood or platelets to save lives of those you know or don't know. It only takes time to save lives

    I'm an every 56 day donor. It only takes an hour every 56 days to save a life. If all quilting board members took an hour, just think of the impact we would have on the world.

    Well, I am going to take the opportunity to say THANKS

    My 6 yr old grandson recently has developed a blood disorder. In the past couple weeks he has had to recieve platelets twice and his levels are very low again, so is likely to have to have more tommorrow. Now its people like you, that helps people like me and my family. We are praying for his recovery, but in the meantime, know that there are little children, and very grateful families out in the real world

    Iron deficient anemia here, I need all the red blood cells I can make. I take injections for that. I wish I could give blood and am thankful for those who do.

    I have donated for the last 3 years. My turn coming again in a week or so. They tell me that my blood is in short supply in the Minot area, so I give. I find that I don't have a lot of nosebleeds when I do. I hope someday that they can find a cure for cancer. Too many in pain and die because of it.

    I wish I could donate lood, but I'm banned from donating because I lived in Poland when they had the mad cow disease scare in England.
    Do all for His glory.
