Frank Miller, of Fayette City, began donating in 1977 and since that time, he has donated 285 units of blood. He was inspired by his wife who needed a blood transfusion when she was giving birth.
Miller enjoys traveling to Red Cross blood drives in other cities to meet new people. He asks his wife of 56 years to allow him "one vice": donating blood."I don't smoke, drink, run around or party. Let me do something I like! You'd think after all this time, she wouldn't bug me," Miller joked.
"I've done a lot of bad things in my life. Now, it's time to do some good," Miller said.
One in seven patients entering a hospital will need a blood transfusion. Patients are counting on the kindness and generosity of blood donors. We urge you to give blood or platelets to help make a lifesaving difference for those in need.
