Growing up, I’ve seen my late father and elder siblings donate blood. Inspired by their life-saving cause, I started donating blood regularly when I was serving National Service. I remind myself to incorporate blood donation into my schedule. It was challenging at the onset. But now, it has become a routine and a habit.
Blood donated goes a long way to help someone, whether it is for surgeries or blood transfusions to sustain their lives. Through blood donation, you can sustain and save the lives of those in need. Their family members can have their loved ones still around them because of your blood donation. As long as my health is good, I will press on with blood donations until I am diagnosed to be medically unfit to do so. I’ve passed the baton to my son, who has been donating regularly since his National Service too.
