I want to especially encourage anyone who is CMV Negative to give as often as you can.
FYI a large portion of the adult population (at least in the US) are CMV carriers, and it doesn't affect us. However, CMV can be deadly to young children or anyone with a weakened immune system. CMV Negative donors, like Type O Negative donors, are especially in demand.
I also want to encourage current donors to inquire about Double Red donations because it helps more patients.
Good luck Wayne! I hope you are better soon!
