An 81-year-old man has 'retired' after 1,173 blood donations that saved 2.4 million babies — here's why his blood is so special
James Harrison, 81, made his 1,173rd and final blood donation on Friday — the end of a 60-year donation streak that has saved the lives of 2.4 million babies, the Sydney Morning Herald reported. He's known, unsurprisingly, as "the man with the golden arm." "It's a sad day for me," he told the Herald. "The end of a long run."
