My dad for many years gave blood. A couple of years ago when he went to donate ( he is 81) now they told him to go see his Dr there was not enough iron in his blood. After seeing his Dr and a specialist he was diagnosed with a cancer With treatment he is cancer free now . His attempt to donate saved his life , when I asked how many gallons he said 2 pints shy of 20 . When I was visiting him around Christmas he received a call asking him to donate they needed his type, he had to tell them he could no longer, I decided that I would for him.
