James Harrison has been saving babies for over 60 years and nobody really knew about it, thank God for his tremendous gift.
Harrison’s body or his blood produces an anti-body doctors have been using to treat expecting mothers whose original blood could severely harm their babies.
Harrison is now 81 years old which is over the age limit of blood donors in Australia. His doctors want him to stop donating and start taking care of his health. I think that’s the right call but I think he’s an amazing man.

More than 3 million doses of Anti-D containing his blood have been issued to Aussie mothers with a negative blood type since 1967, the organization said.
“I hope it’s a record that somebody breaks, because it will mean they are dedicated to the cause,” Harrison said
Harrison had received blood donations himself as a 14-year-old and had a surgery to remove his lung.
“I had 13 units of blood and my life had been saved by unknown people,” Harrison told CNN in an earlier interview.
Harrison then vowed that he would pay it forward when he turned 18. Blood donors must be 18 in Australia.
Scientists aren’t sure why Harrison’s body naturally produces the rare antibody but think it is related to the blood transfusions he received as a teenager, reports said.
As a child my father told me that everyone has a gift from God and in this story that rings true. Just save all those babies is a feat that will probably never be out done.
The more I think about it the more it’s amazing. Well they always say that we are connected somehow and blood sticker than water. Sound off in the comment section below.
