Use Your Good Health To Help Others
Enjoying good health throughout your whole life is quite a blessing. You’ll be able to go through life facing hardly any hurdles relating to your health, and you should find that there is never anything holding you back from achieving all of your hopes and dreams. Unfortunately, though, that isn’t the case for some people. Some individuals are plagued by ill health all the way throughout their life since childhood while others develop serious conditions in adulthood. No matter how long someone has been plagued by ill health, though, it can often be quite debilitating and can really hold them back in life.
Do you wish you could do something to make things better for those who have not been blessed with your good health? Well, you might be happy to hear that there is a lot you can do. Read on to find out more!
Donate Your Blood
Blood transfusions are needed to help in all kinds of situations, such as during childbirth, to help people with severe anemia, and to ensure serious operations can go smoothly. To aid all of these procedures, it is really important that blood banks are stocked up with as many different blood types that they can get. So, blood donation drives are always looking for donors. All you need to do is sign up to be a blood donor, and you can then go along to the next drive to do your bit.
Donate Your Eggs
As well as donating blood, you might want to consider donating some of your eggs to help infertile couples realize their dream of becoming parents. Before you can donate your eggs, you will need to be screened to make sure you don’t have any underlying health conditions that you aren’t aware of. You can always call MCRM Fertility to find out more about these screenings and the other standards you will need to meet. If you do meet them all, then you will be given an appointment in which you can start the whole process.
Latest data; There has now been 269 organ donor heroes since 1st of April. This is 38 more than at same point last year. They have given life to 683 patients in need of a transplant which is 82 more than same point last year. I continue to be inspired by this amazing generosity.

Become An Organ Donor
It’s also worth considering becoming an organ donor. To do this, you just need to sign up to be on the organ donor register. Once you pass away, your organs will then be harvested and used in transplant operations to ensure that sick patients are given a second chance at life. There are some organs that you can be alive to donate, such as a kidney and bone marrow. More often than not, these organs will often go to a close relative who needs a transplant as you will be a close match.
Sell Your Hair
Many cancer patients lose their hair as they undergo their chemo treatment, so rely on the use of wigs. There are lots of companies that create wigs out of natural hair for cancer patients, and they usually buy the hair from people willing to sell it to them. So, next time you have a haircut, you might want to keep the chopped-off hair and send it in to be used in a wig!
