Fort Myers Local Sets World Record for Donating Blood

Your Fort Myers moving specialists wish to congratulate John Sheppard on being inducted into the Guiness Book of World Records. Sheppard, a Fort Myers local, has been donating blood regularly since he was 18 years old, and at 315 pints donated, Sheppard holds the honorable record for most blood donated by one person. Sheppard has had an ongoing passion for donating blood which stems from a good friend of his who joined the marines after the two graduated from high school. Gene Prevatt, John’s friend, was severely injured roughly a year after joining the service, nearly losing his life. After being transferred to a Hospital which Sheppard attended for schooling, Prevatt and Sheppard were reunited. The experience moved Sheppard and soon after he gave his first blood donation. It has been over forty years since that day, and John has not stopped donating; it is estimated that John’s donations alone have helped save nearly 1,000 lives! Your Fort Myers movers here were touched by the story that Sheppard’s donations continue to tell. If you plan to donate blood in the future, on behalf of all the lives you’ll help save, your mover in Fort Myers sincerely thanks you. However, be sure not to plan any blood donation on the same day as your move unless you’re not lifting a finger!
