I try to give blood a few times a year. I have no luck getting my husband to give. I hope I can convince a few of you to give. As we approach this Thanksgiving and Christmas season, there is a gift you can give that will not cost you any money--just a little time and yes a needle stick. But compared to the good it will do for someone like Dr. Smak's son Henry, what's a little needle stick.
And since most of us aren't close enough to Dr. Smak or her family to give then a physical hug or take them a casserole dish or do a load of laundry for them, this is a way that those of us who have befriended her in this cyber-world can do something for them (or another family like theirs). So please give blood this "giving season". As the t-shirt says, you'll be giving someone another birthday, another anniversary, another chance.
