Janesville Man Stops Giving Blood After 63 Years

It's 25 gallons and out for Russ French. That's how much blood the Janesville man has donated over the years.

He donated his 200th unit of blood this week during a Red Cross drive at Bethel Baptist Church in Janesville.

French first donated blood in 1942, when he was just a teenager. He's now 79 and he says the blood he gave this year will be his last.
