  1. I have tried giving blood and they will not accept because I had rheumatic fever as a child so I guess I have tainted blood :-( If I could, I'd be giving as often as I could like my mother did

    there r other ways u can help people who need blood products since u cant donate. u can volunteer at drives, bake cookies or donate other food for ur local drives or sponsor blood drives!
    i called 1-800-GIVE LIFE for info on how to be a sponsor. i have 2 a yr in memory of our son, Jason who needed many, many units during his 7 yr fight with cancer.

    hopefully, i've inspired u to give em a call.
