Roll Up Roll Up
Your sleeves that is!
Did you know that it's National Blood Donor Awareness Week?
Every four weeks I have an infusion of Intragam P (or liquid gold as us recipients like to call it). It keeps me healthy as I have an antibody deficiency and can't fight off viruses and bacteria without it.
Intragam is made from the plasma component of blood and contains replacement antibodies which are used to treat not only primary immune system deficiencies, but also a variety of autoimmune disorders.
Every four weeks when I go in for an infusion, I post an Instagram of my Intragam. Yes, it's true.... it doesn't take much to amuse me. In fact, if you search for #intragam on Instagram, you just get random photos from people who can't spell when they hashtag.
Looking back through my photos and making a collage is a great reminder to be eternally grateful, and makes me appreciate blood donors even more.
If you've made it this far, then call 131495 and make an appointment, or you can even book online.
