National

Five Arizona men have saved thousands of lives by donating more than 2,000 pints of blood.

The fabulous five have made donating blood at a Mesa blood bank part of their lifestyle.

Robert EmmelKemp is one of the men. He personally has donated 400 pints.

He says he feels good knowing that something so simple can help so many.

“With Veteran’s Day just having passed, we know that veterans are willing to give their lives to save ours. So in this way, I find that I can save a life without necessarily putting mine on the line but I’m happy to do so,” said EmmelKemp.

The five men hope their story encourages others to do the same.
