I used to be a Red Cross donor on a regular basis, then I developed DVT ( Deep Vein Thrombosis) in my lower leg. I had to take Coumiden for a year and because of that I wasn't allowed to donate anymore. I don't take Coumiden anymore and now you've got me thinking that perhaps it's time I started donating once again.
Glad that they were there for you!
And BTW, this ain't a bad forum to contribute to either!
