As a former Paramedic in NY State, I saw many people that needed blood to survive. It is with that experience that I truly believe when I say, "Give blood, the gift of life!" That is one reason why I give blood on a regular basis. With Big Red Buses and OneBlood Donor Centers where anyone can give blood, take the opportunity to give your blood to save someone else's life. It is a gift that you know will make a difference perhaps whether someone lives or not.
