Lillian Bloodworth lives up to her name, so to speak.
Over the course of nearly five decades, the 92-year-old has donated 23 gallons of blood, starting in the 1960s. (The average person's body contains about 1.5 gallons.)
"When I first started, I would have donors read my name tag and ask if that was really my name or was that a gimmick for the blood bank," she said.
During a StoryCorps conversation recorded in January 2010 in Gulf Breeze, Fla., Lillian told her late husband, John, about why it was important for her to give blood as often as she can.
