To me donating blood is almost an obligation because you’re helping people as well as yourself. I started donating in 1968 when they had the old hospital where Immigration is now located. Back then, the process was definitely not as comfortable as it is now; you felt it more. It soon became natural to me and now I look forward to it. It gives me satisfaction that I’m doing something to help the community.
I started donating back in the 60s, before there was even a blood bank. The reason I do it is it helps people by saving lives, and you never know when it might end up saving your life.
I became a blood donor because I love being able to give back to the community and enjoy helping people. Donating blood saves lives. It’s a lot faster, a lot easier, and a lot less painful than I expected. And it only takes about 15 minutes of your time.
The reason why I became a blood donor is to save lives. It is also good for your health because studies have shown it reduces the risk of heart attacks and even cancer. The process is very quick and feels like a mosquito bite.
I chose to become a blood donor because firstly, it saves lives, and secondly, it helps you to promote a better lifestyle. I became a donor in 1994. The blood donation process is always pleasant and is handled by a very professional group at the Cayman Islands Blood Bank; I’ve never had a bad experience. Endure a discomfort similar to two mosquito bites and you could save three lives.
I have no problem donating knowing that the blood I contribute can save someone’s life. I was a blood donor from working in Jamaica as a police officer. Knowing what it feels like when an officer is down and needs blood is what motivated me to start giving.
I made the decision to become a blood donor 12 years ago because my grandfather and mother both were recipients of blood donations. I wanted to be a part of giving the gift that could save lives. To date I have given a total of 22 blood donations; the feeling I get once I have given my donation is priceless. I count it as a privilege in which I take very seriously. My grandfather has passed on since that time but I continue to donate as a way of me keeping his memory alive internally. It costs nothing to me, but means life or death to someone else, so I could not imagine saying no to donating blood.
