Give Life Give Blood

We know that when we give blood, we give life, but I don't think it's as widely known that donated blood also gives quality of life, and extends life for people like Janet Frame, who had leukemia. She received blood transfusions for the last six months of her life, more frequently at the end.

She always used to dream and wonder about the kind people whose blood kept her feeling alive and gave her some strength and energy when her own blood was failing.

I post this photograph in the hope it inspires somebody to give this precious gift.
