blood donation

I gave blood yesterday for the first time in years.

The American Red Cross now allows prostate cancer patients to donate if it has been at least a year since treatment, and there is no sign of recurrence. The same holds true for most other cancers.

This is a change from past rules, which said it had to be five years.

I am a regular blood donor also. I hope many will be donating blood and to save lives.
