“I started giving blood in the 1970s. I did it first because my then-husband was diagnosed with cancer and he couldn’t give anymore so I took his place.The second reason was that it was the right thing to do. I gave until I was diagnosed with diabetes. I recently found out that some diabetics can give blood. I am now going to see if I can give again.It would be something that I could do.”-- Scharell Young
