Kate's donor story

Kate 021c Tana Ruby LR
My father always used to donate blood. I don't know how many years he donated for, but he had a strong sense of giving back to the community all his life, so it must have been several decades. Since he passed away from cancer in 2008, I wanted to continue his contribution.

At the heart of the matter is the fact you never know when you might need to receive blood. If my contribution can make a positive difference for another person, that's all I need to know. I hope there will always be plenty of others who think the same.
