I had the chance to speak with Mr. Whitney after he completed his goal, and the first thing he asked me was, "Do you donate?" Slightly embarrassed, I explained to Mr. Whitney that I suffer from a case of "white-coat-phobia", not necessarily brought on by needles, but by medical procedures in general. Mr. Whitney encouraged me to try to donate but instead of focusing on the procedure itself, he suggested I focus on the cancer patients and car accident victims that my donation would help. He explained that each donation has the potential to save three lives. It's much harder to come up with an excuse not to donate blood after speaking with Mr. Whitney!
His entire story can be found at www.plateletsacrossamerica.com.
Congratulations and thank you Al Whitney! Thank you to everyone who donates!
