WLOS Anchor Jay Siltzer is a cancer survivor and blood recipient.  Siltzer donated blood for the first time earlier this year, and he plans to roll up his sleeve again at Operation Blood Drive.  "I know firsthand what it's like to need and receive blood," Siltzer said.  "Now, having the opportunity to return the 'Gift of Life' is especially meaningful."
