Curt Bryant has donated blood at Blood Connection four times. Each time he says has been good experience, and one that he knows is making a difference in people’s lives.

Bryant says donating blood is typically a quick, easy, painless process. For him, he says he started donating blood because he put himself in a patient’s shoes.

Laying in a hospital room, thinking he may not make it because there’s a blood supply shortage.

He says, when you think of it that way, the question turns into why wouldn’t I want to donate blood.

“If you can do it, it’s painless. There’s nothing to be afraid of. There’s a lot of blood types out there that are really desperately needed. I have a blood type that’s universal so it could help a lot of people. Why not,” Bryan said.
