Thank you, Lisa, and others who are signed up. It has never occurred to me to sign up to be a bone marrow donor! From what I see on the television shows (the closest I've ever been to donating marrow), it's a pretty painful procedure, but I dunno the details of it. I AM glad to hear that signing up would only involve a mouth swab, because now y'all have me thinking about it too.

I guess, if anyone has additional details about the actual act of donating marrow, we'd appreciate hearing about it.

I signed up due to the fact that Dad died from Leukemia in 1990. Luckily his 1 sister matched, but we didn't do it, since his marrow was to fiberous and they said it wouldn't take. So I don't know what the pain level is. But very rarely do you see a family member match. What a better gift of life.

I am also a donor when my life on earth has ended. Figure I don't need it and if it will help someone it is worth the gift.
