VIDEO: Three Generations Donate BloodPosted:
VINELAND - Three generations of the McMahon family donated blood at the Vineland Rotary Club blood drive on Tuesday.
Ron McMahon is 81 years old, and has donated blood to the American Red Cross almost 200 times. His son Scott, and grandson Ryan have some catching up to do. Scott is approaching 70 donations. And Ryan is on his third donation.
“I would tell others that it’s easy to do," said Ron McMahon. "It’s a good way to help other people. And it’s very important for parents to encourage their sons, as Scott has done with Ryan, to give blood. And now that blood drives are being held in high schools, it’s very important also for youngsters to encourage their parents to give blood, if they’re not already doing so.”
