Recently I was reading a blog I enjoy when I came across a story of a little boy battling cancer and in great need of a bone marrow match. The blog post linked to The Bone Marrow Donor Program. Since cancer has become such a new reality for my family I clicked the link and decided I would join.
It took about five minutes to sign up to become a match. It asked minimal questions and cost me nothing. Today I received my donor kit in the mail. It was nothing more than four mouth swaps. It took me all of five more minutes to complete the kit, package it up and put it in the mail.
I strongly urge you to consider becoming a bone marrow donor. The likelihood is that you will never be matched BUT IF YOU DO think of what you could do for another person.
Be The Match
