Never said it was his blood
I think this is the guy who as some weird antibody for a rare disorder so he donates when he can. I’m lazy and it’s Tuesday, but I’m sure this is the story.
@Bionicbonk, I am lazy enough to not question you
@Bionicbonk, this sounded familiar, so quick Google search. James Harrison (who was news in 2018 because he could no longer donate) had a rare antigen in his blood that saved a bunch of kids from Rhesus disease (HDN). This is more recent news about John Sheppard, who made it into The GBoWR for donating the most blood. This guy has donated as much as possible ever since he was 18. He didnt take money for the blood and wasnt even aware he made the world record. Dude is a saint
@Dr Grimmwell, I agree that the guy is awesome, but you almost never get money for giving blood. You get it for giving plasma
@Bionicbonk, I’ve got something like that for sickle cell disease, but like the last time I donated I passed out and it was terrifying and awful and I’m scared to do it again
@Awc123awc, did you do double reds, or a standard donation? I did double red once, never again, otherwise I donated regularly when my blood pressure wasn’t above Red Cross allowable limits.
That’s a lot of boner juice
Sure, this guy is a hero but when I try to donate 100 gallons of blood they ask me who's blood it is and call the cops
Many people have done this. I was just reading about a guy who did it over 22 years and another who hit his hundredth gallon on his 70th birthday. For the record though it almost certainly had to be just platelets and not whole blood. You can only give whole blood 6-8 times a year and can give platelets more like 24 times a year
I almost hit 4 gallons donated! It’s the easiest way to complete my bimonthly bloodletting ritual.
