Glen Peltier Speaks: I have hesitated in the past about talking about my blood donations over the past 62 years as it has been a personal thing with me. I always felt good about donating. As the years went by, I was given many awards from both the Red Cross in Canada and the Florida Blood Bank.
When my total donations in Canada reached 100, I was honoured in Windsor, ON and saw many people who had been saved by blood that they had received. (Click on any article to read, pause, and click once more.)
My oldest son Terry and I donated together many times. I want people to know it is harmless and good for you to give. As you get older your system makes a little less blood so now I just give three times a year. I hope to go on giving forever. I have always felt better after giving blood. Glen Peltier.
