now that I am a year past all my surgeries and am 1 year + from cancer and none of my meds preclude me from....

Tomorrow I will be able to donate blood, For over 15 years I was able to donate at least 3 times a year and now finaly again after almost 2 years I will be able to donate again.

it may seem silly to some but if i can save a life with my donation then its all worth it. It is 1 step closer to being "NORMAL"

That is wonderful news! Thank you for sharing that. I wish I could donate blood, especially since I have B- but the doctors told me that I am unable to donate.

Congratulations!
