At the high age of 65, I just finished my 66th blood donation on 19th March 2016. and next month I will be 66.
According to the regulations of the Hong Kong Red Cross, normal people should stop their donation at the age of 60. But if he or she is a regular donator; it can be carry on until 65. The prerequisite is that the donation must kept on doing every year after 60, once it has stopped for one whole year, it cannot be carried on.
So how about after 65, each time it must be approved by their doctor. Thus it can be carried on until 70. The same term is that is must be carried on each year, once it has be stopped for one whole year, it cannot carry on.
But when after 70, it must be stopped no matter what physical condition of the donator. But when attending the doctor, it must be done during office hours and it is not so convenient to me. Therefore this time might be my last time of donation.
However, 66 times of donation is a nice record, normally, each donation can save 3 lives. I have already saved 198 lives.
No matter for what purpose, saving life is about all. Don’t mind how Heaven would pay you back, its no a problem. Just do whatsoever you think you should.
I am waiting for my students to break my record, hope all of you can thus become a super-professor.
