Baby twins inspire Dad to donate

Wellington

Just over a month ago, my wife and I were lucky enough to have two twin boys arrive. Unfortunately they were 11 weeks early, so in need of some extra care.
One night, walked in to see one of my dear boys hooked up to a large bag of O+ blood. Bit of a shock, but then it dawned on me; it was needed and that I hadn't donated in about 5 years. I am back onto it now, purely to say a huge thank you for helping my son.
