Hi again, I recently received an email about becoming a bone marrow donor and signing up on ‘Be The Match’. This particular email was in regards to a very young little boy (just turned one) who is need of a bone marrow transplant due to a genetic disease. This hurt my heart, I am not a parent and never ever want to imagine the pain and heartache they are going through at this moment. I used to give plasma every week back in my college days, which was a desperate need for money, but was also an good feeling knowing my plasma could potentially help save a life. So, I thought to myself “why not become a donor?”. I would gladly go through those days/weeks of pain as a donor knowing that it would either save a life or give that family that much more time with their loved one. I am not that well educated with the entire process, but am willing to dig some more into it and see if it’s something I can do (or that my body can handle). So I guess with that I encourage you all to at least take a look on Be The Match or Delete Blood Cancer .
Also please feel free to comment about this process or if you have any experience with this, any advice or knowledge is always appreciated!
Huzzah! You'll be getting an email confirmation shortly!
