See for yourself in the following pictures.
In this picture, they are preparing me for my donation.
All prepped and waiting for the needle ...
Here's the needle!
It did not hurt. The nurse/tech was very gentle.
Filling up the containers for the samples.
What a wonderful experience! I hope that it will be the first of many donations I will make every 56 days.
It is great to be a Partner for Life.
