Event Description:  At the age of 39, I found myself in the Critical Care Unit on life support from a severed renal artery and a torn bladder due to complications from a surgery. I received 9 units of blood that day. A human body needs between 8 to 10 pints. God worked a miracle, and lets just say that I had a different perspective on giving blood.

The need is constant.
The gratification is instant.
Save a life!
