Rave: Blood Donor Superstar

Posted: June 29, 2009 in Uncategorized

With all the crap happening in this world it’s nice to read about something good and worthwhile for a change. This 90-year old woman in California donated her 200th pint of blood last week. That’s more than 25 gallons of blood!

Margaret Delfino has been giving blood regularly since 1954 with a 5 year hiatus starting in 2001 when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. When her doctors declared her to be cancer free she started donating blood again. Every 8 weeks she meets one of her daughters at the blood bank and they donate blood together. Margaret still lives in her own home and enjoys gardening, planting flowers, and spending time with her family. What an amazing woman!
