When I was in college, I started donating blood regularly. Then, 10 years later, I had to stop when I was diagnosed with Glioblastoma – brain cancer in the final stage.
After that, everything was just the opposite. Instead of donating blood, I need it, especially platelets. There was a moment when it was almost impossible to get blood. Especially when I was flatlined for a few minutes. I kept praying that someone would come and help by donating blood.
