Save a Life-Be A Bone Marrow Donor

I've written about these stories before to encourage everyone who reads this to consider being a bone marrow donor.

It is really, really easy to get on the registry and there is a chance that you can save a life-just because of your own amazing genetic constitution.

I was once called to go for a second round of testing, after my banked sample information showed that I was a possible match for someone. I did the second round and unfortunately, was not a six point match for the sick person. I cannot express how grateful I was just to even get the call, that I might have the opportunity to save someone's life. I'll never forget it.

A young boy in the US needs a transplant. 

You could be his match. Please consider getting swabbed. It is such a good cause.

Thank you.
