Odd for a Friday

4 years ago

I am going in tomorrow for a few hours in order to give blood.

Before cancer, I always used to donate blood.After my radiation and chemotherapy, I stopped. I assumed that they wouldn’t want my blood. A few years ago, I found out that I was eligible to
give again, and so I did.

I know that blood is needed to save lives. I am thankful I am still here:this is just a little way of paying it forward.
