It's the "Gift of Life"...I know, because I've had it TWICE! (by David)
I was severely injured at work in 1978 when I broke my back and was bleeding to death...it took 17 pints of blood to save me.
I'd donated a few times before this event, but it really inspired me to do more...to thank those who were there for me in my time of need...to try to be there for them in theirs...
Then, in 1995, I was scheduled for an elective back surgery, and had donated several pints in the autologous program. Following surgery, I had an emergency need for more blood, and lacking the time to get my own from storage, the doctors used another 18 pints...
So I owe my life not once, but twice to the generosity and gifts from other donors...that makes me proud to help out, too!
