I try to give blood as often as I can. Life gets a little bit hectic and busy so sometimes I end up letting it go a little longer in between donation times, but I still try. Giving blood is one of the easiest ways to help save a life and James Harrison takes giving blood very seriously. So serious, in fact, that he has donated plasma nearly every week for 60 years. Wow. Talk about extraordinary! There is something else that is extraordinary about James and it is flowing freely through his veins.
James' blood is extra special.
James is not just your average blood donor, though. In the 1960s, James was discovered to have an unusual antibody in his blood. He is responsible for the Anti-D injection.
This injection has saved the lives of more than 2 million babies.
Every batch of Anti-D that has ever been made in Australia has come from James' blood.
Share James' amazing story with your friends!
