come to think about it, My mom died 12/18/2010 I remember the Dr saying she had a Anemia and if I knew about this, I didn't the Dr never said anything to me, But mom was on Plavix she died suddenly while she was sleeping her hemoglobin was very low.

Plavix + AML
Why don't we have bone cancer check ups? We have colonoscopies, mammograms, and other preventative checks of cancer... but nothing that is no so damned invasive to check bone for cancer... it goes undetected until it's too late! When will this be on the front burner of awareness??
