Luck with donors?

Posted on July 24, 2014 at 9:31 15 Comments

Hi all,

Just curious about other's experience with the donor testing process, as far as frequency of donors that are actually accepted. Five years ago I had five donors lined up to be tested. All of them proceeded with testing.

This week, my last potential donor was excluded. Five up..five down. Rats.

It would appear that nobody's as healthy as they think they are.

Anyone else finding it a challenge to get a potential donor through the hoops?
