Since hearing about his special biological gift, Harrison has been giving blood every week for the last sixty years, which amounts to roughly 1,100 donations. Not only that, but scientists were then able to use Harrison’s blood to manufacture a life-saving vaccine for the disease called Anti-D.
Over 3 million women have been treated with Anti-D made from Harrison’s blood—and Harrison’s own daughter was treated with the serum which resulted in the healthy birth of her son.
His dedication to helping others has made him a national hero. In 1999, he was given the Medal of the Order of Australia, one of the country’s most prestigious honors.
The only reason that Harrison will no longer be donating his blood is because the cut-off age for blood donations in Australia is 81 years old. Now, he hopes to encourage others to take his place.
“I hope it’s a record that somebody breaks, because it will mean they are dedicated to the cause.”
