A Different Kind of Christmas Gift

Blood transfusions seem to still have been a bit unconventional in the area, even though blood typing, a key in the process, was discovered in 1910.  It is gratifying that so many citizens volunteered for the testing, and the surgery to help the man who was ill was a success.  It is certainly one of the medical procedures we may take for granted, but volunteers still have to come forward to donate blood.
