One Response to “North Carolina”

  1. About 25 yrs ago the Red Cross contacted me after donating blood and was told I had the antibodies to HePATITUS B in my body which meant not only had I been exposed to & infected by Hep. B somehow BUT THEN my body had spontaneously healed itself ALL WITHOUT ME BEING DIAGNOSED OR TREATED so I definitely wanna say THANK YOU GOD bc even though I can’t donate blood or plasma it has never bothered any of my 4 children ~2 born BEFORE & 2 after I knew anything. So My question is CAN I DONATE MY BODY? or will that disqualify me as having an “infectious disease???
