A few weeks ago I read about Ceci Christenson, a young teen who was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), the name for a group of blood disorders, in September 2009.
Her 'make a wish' was to raise awareness about the match program for bone morrow.
"According to the National Marrow Donor Program, seventy percent of people do not have a donor in their family depend on the program’s Be The Match Registry® to find a compatible donor."
I did it this morning - it was easy! 4 swabs around the inside of the cheeks each, and you just slide the kit in an postage paid envelope, and place it in the mailbox!
Result: Myself, and many others are sending these swabs in with the intention that we could be the match for someone and maybe even help save a life <3 How cool would that be? Thanks for reading and the support! I'm excited for tomorrows act of kindness already!
