Man with the Golden Arm

Bradley Mattes   |   June 13, 2018

This story will warm your heart.  James Harrison had major surgery when only 14 years old, which required he receive blood donations.  Early in life, he determined he would be a blood donor, and everyone’s thankful he did.  James has a rare blood type that makes it possible to produce life-saving medication for pregnant women.  If a woman has Rh-negative blood and her unborn baby has Rh-positive, her blood can produce antibodies which attack the baby’s blood.  Over a span of 60 years James donated enough blood to save 2.4 million babies.  His blood was responsible for providing medication for his own daughter and as a result, protected the life of his grandson.  It’s easy to see why he’s called the “man with the golden arm.”
