Be The Match!

At work, we recently had a bone marrow donor match drive. One of my co-workers’ sons was recently diagnosed with leukemia. It’s unlikely that any one of us at work are a match, but the hope is that a drive like this will help find a match for someone else and that similar drives around the world will increase the chance of him finding a match.

It’s a very simple process. It just takes ten minutes to fill out the form and then a few cotton swabs rubbed in your cheeks. Only about 1 in 20,000 registrants ever gets called upon to subsequently donate (and even then, it is now mostly done with a simple non-surgical procedure). Please consider joining the bone marrow registry. It’s just a few minutes of your time and could possibly save someone’s life.
