James Harrison, an 81-year-old Australian man who has given blood a record-breaking 1,173 times, made his final donation last month. When he was 14, James Harrison needed numerous blood transfusions to survive an operation, and he has given blood every few weeks across Australia since then. Along the way, health professionals discovered that he carried a precious antibody that is used to make a medication that combats rhesus disease. He became known as the “Man with the Golden Arm” and received a Medal of Order in Australia. Thanks to his donations, he helped to save 2.4 million babies.
