Join the Club!

After patiently checking our mailbox for the last few weeks I finally got notice that I am officially in the National Marrow Donor Program!  Woohoo!  The hubs actually got his notice in the mail quite a while ago, so I guess my cheek cells were just way more interesting than his or something and that's why mine took longer.  Or something like that anyway.

It's pretty exciting to be listed in the registry.  At any time Thomas or I could be contacted and asked to make good on our promise to donate if we're identified as a potential bone marrow match for someone.  It could be next week, next year or even many years from now since you stay on the registry until you're 61 years old.  Every day doctors search the registry for patients in need of a bone marrow transplant to save their lives.  Every day holds the possibility to give someone new life.  And knowing that gives that much more meaning to my own life every day.

Interested in learning more or joining the amazing program yourself?

Check out the official website here.

Read about how the hubs and I joined the registry here and here.  It's so easy and so worth it!
