giving blood saved my life

My iron count was too low to give blood. This can come from internal bleeding. I jumped my colonoscopy schedule by 2.5 years. They found a stage 2 tumor and I had it removed. Now I am cancer free. I am thankful my blood saved other lives in the past. This time the blood center saved mine. I guess I had "paid it forward". Stop taking this condition lightly. Get scoped, NOW.
