Free to Donate Blood

A highpoint of my Independence Day was that I was able to give blood at the Blood Center of Wisconsin. I always feel good when I do that.

Last year after having kidney surgery for kidney cancer, my surgeon said I would not be able to give again. But because I have gone over one year without recurrence or more treatment, I can donate again. What a great feeling of freedom!

I felt so energized after my dual red donation Saturday.



About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
