Red Cross donation

Jul 14, 2005

Hi Dr. Bob,

I had an extremely low risk encounter (kissing, and receiving oral) and had negative home access tests at 12, 19, and 24 weeks. In your expert opinion, do you feel I am OK to donate blood to the Red Cross?

Thanks for the support, and I will continue to support your foundation.

One of your many fans, JC

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi J.C.,

When you donate blood there will be a questionnaire for you to complete before you actually donate. Answer all the questions honestly.

Do I feel you are safe to donate blood? Yes, absolutely. J.C., I think you're a superstar.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob

Nervous week better than lifetime of doubt
