First time donor at 76 years old

For many years I was under the impression I couldn't donate because of the medications I am on and the various health issues I've had over the years. After seeing an ad on my Facebook page looking for donors, I decided to make a call. After having a discussion with a very knowledgeable and helpful nurse, I discovered I was able to donate. So through her I made an appointment. Throughout the process of donating my blood, I couldn't believe how professional and helpful the staff at the Bayers Road location were. It was a very joyful and rewarding experience. I will be doing it again when my 56 day waiting period is up. So glad I took the chance and made the phone call, my only regret is I didn't do it sooner. My sincere thanks to all the people involved in this wonderful much needed endeavor.
