“I have always felt better after giving blood.” Glen Peltier Has Set A Fine Example!! It is NEVER too Late to Begin!

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.)

In Florida, I received my 10 gallon award three years ago. At the present time I am told my present donations have been 134 in Canada, and 84 in Florida.

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.

    The World Health Organization says that one sample of donated blood can save up to three lives.
    That being case Glen; you are undoubtedly responsible for saving up to 650 lives. That is a wonderful achievement, and like in shuffleboard your unselfish and generous attitude is unmatched and will always be recorded by your outstanding achievements.
