After surviving a brain aneurysm 17 years ago, a local man helps to give the gift of life by volunteering at an area blood center. Dressed as Santa and Mrs. Claus, David Carlson and his wife Cindy encourage others to donate blood at the Rock River Valley Blood Center. For the past 10 years, the pair have donated blood every eight weeks. "So I figure that God gave me life, what better gift to give than the gift of life for somebody else," Dave Carlson says.
