Yes I used to donate whole blood as often as I could, now I donate platelets only, every two weeks (as long as I'm not sick and my iron cooperates).

I will as long as I can...blood donations saved my daughter's life and platelets helped give my sister an extra 11 years of life.

My father died of Mad Cow. No one in his natural family can donate blood, organs, etc.

No, I have small rolling veins. They have to use a butterfly needle to draw blood.

No, not often anymore. I was a regular donor for many years when I worked for a large company that had blood drives right in the building.

I made my first donation in high school in the late 70's. I have been a regular donor & even a pharesis donor. However, in recent years I have become a fan of tattoos and/or been on blood thinners to manage veinous disease so have not been able to donate. I'm no longer on thinners but just got my newest tattoo in October so must wait another 5 months before I can give again.

I'm going to donate for the first time in about 10 years today. I wonder how many people donate regularly.
