Lesley's 204th donation


My big bro was very unwell in Wairoa Hospital with an undiagnosed septic stomach ulcer. Many, many units of blood were poured into his AB-type arm.
After saying my last farewells to him, I returned to Hamilton.
He went on to become the very proud grandpa to Mark & Jamie. I became a whole blood and now a plasma donor. I’ve just clocked up #204 today. Plenty more where that came from!
