That is so amazing that you’re doing this! I hear the bone marrow transplant is a lot more painful too. Huge commendation to you for doing something like this!

@kelmac: oh yay!  i hope you end up a match!  my BIL was a marrow donor just a few months ago, and was matched just a couple weeks after registering!  it was an amazing experience for our whole family, we are so proud of him, and believe their must have been some divine intervention that guided him to register.  we do know that the patient is responding positively to my BIL’s marrow, but after a full year, the patient and donor are allowed to meet, if both parties would like that.  i still don’t think my BIL knows just how amazing he is for donating, and how he really may have saved someones life.  it’s so sad when you hear of patients who have matches in their family, but for whatever reason that family member won’t donate.

That is so nice of you.  I wish I could be on those list, but I cannot, but the FH and my son are on the registry.  Really great of you to share the information.

I registered as a donor last year.  That is so awesome that you are a match for someone.  When I registered, it made me so happy to think that someday, part of my body that I am totally willing to sacrifice may save someone else’s life.  It’s wonderful to think that something that seems so simple can have the power to do that.
