WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- As Ed Kisslak prepared Thursday to give his 232nd pint of blood to the American Red Cross what troubled the 74-year-old veteran was not how he would feel when the bag was full. Nah, he's done this for 47 years. What troubled him was the number of multi-gallon donors who might not be able to donate next time. "What happens when we cannot give any more?" he said. "The Red Cross does not get that many first-time donors. " The Red Cross is losing its faithful, long-term donors to age and health problems, said Joe Stringent, a donor resources representative in Johnstown, Pa. Donors like Kisslak, who has given 29 gallons of his blood, are few and far between, Stringent said.

Its donors can help themselves to free meals like ham or chicken-salad sandwiches. “After that many years, you're on a first-name basis with a lot of them,” Duffey said. Duffey, 80, is passing on the responsibility of organizing the blood drives to Bernie McGarity and John Ingels.

Franklin County (Pa.) Commissioner Robert L. “Bob” Thomas said he has been receiving good news as he recovers from a bone-marrow transplant. Thomas, who has myelodysplastic syndrome, wrote in an email that his blood counts are increasing dramatically. He will be tested this week to ensure the new blood cells are related to his daughter's donated marrow and not his own. “My doctor believes the new cells are likely hers, based on the quickness of my increase of numbers,” Thomas said.

Author Kathleen Sharp is very deserving of the plaudits for her masterful portrayal of a complicated and controversial subject. Indeed, one critic rated “Blood Medicine” to be the “best nonfiction book of the past 20 years.” Yet, this book reads more like a Charles Dickens novel with its abundant cast of failed human beings. There are few heroes in this sordid story of so many members of the medical profession who gave way to material gain at the expense of ethical judgment. The medicine of interest was epo (epoetin alpha)
