Wish 14- Donate blood/blood products

This one is a pretty straight forward wish. People with ME have a life long ban on donating blood (but funnily enough some doctors don't believe the condition exists yet won't accept our blood!). I know so many people who are kept alive by blood, not just the red blood cells you think of when donating but things like platelets, plasma and antibodies. Did you know you can donate platelets up to 24 times in one year? Think of all those lives you could save!

This is Jayde, a wonderful Mcfly and Twilight mad 19 year old who has been kept alive since the age of 7 weeks with regular blood transfusions due to having a condition called Diamond Blackfan Anemia (DBA). She is currently working at a nursery looking after children and still having regular transfusions.

I wonder if 30 people would be willing to donate some blood on my behalf? Please!

At the time of writing this there is a big shortage of O neg in the Uk

Shortly after posting this someone has booked herself in to donate blood so that's 1/30 so far!

I would love to hear or see pictures if you take part with any of my wishes and will read them on my birthday (21/12). My contact details are my30wishes@hotmail.com and Vikki C/O Post Pals, PO Box 278, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT23 4WN, England. Thank you
