Man with rare blood type has made 984 donations

leave a comment »

An Australian man with an extremely rare kind of blood has donated his blood every few weeks since he was 18 years old. His blood plasma contains a special antibody that helps babies from dying of Rhesus disease, a severe form of anemia.

Giving blood is one of the easiest ways you can save a life. sammyVicious highly encourages you to do so, especially when you have a day where you aren’t doing anything. I used to give platelets pretty often, and will probably do so again regularly.

To find a blood drive near you (n NY/NJ) check out the NY Blood Center.
