Thank you to all who came out to support the In Honour of Answering TTP Blood Donation Drive

Seven first time donors were amoungst the donors who came out on December 2, 2010 to support the blood drive.  The consensus from the donors who donated blood for the first time was that of surprised relief at how easy it was.  “I thought I would feel different, but I don’t” said Jeannie, “I will be donating every 56 days from now on.”

But we still have a long way to go!
