Can I as a CAD donate blood?

The unofficial consensus at this time is NO.

We would appreciate documentation we can share originating from Doctors, or Officials connected with blood services, to confirm or dispute this.

Bear in mind that you as a CAD have an autoimmune blood disease, and possible other underlying yet to be diagnosed causes.

Feedback, from numerous CADs, has indicated the CAD affected were either first notified of their CAD after donating, when they were unaware.  Or if they were aware they were CAD, and notified a blood collection facility of their disease via donation questionnaires or medical history, they were turned away from donating.

We hope to share more information on this subject, backed up by the medical community or blood services.
