"Donating is one easy way to give of yourself to help others survive." Tom Tyler
Tom Tyler (pictured with his daughter Tara) was just two donations shy of being an 18 gallon blood donor, when it unexpectedly became his turn to receive. His open heart surgery went well, but he ended up requiring two units of blood, post-operation. One of the first things he did once he was able? Donate blood, of course. He can now officially call himself a 19+ gallon donor.
