I recently read about an organization that has a national registry that offers people from 18 to 59 years old the opportunity to donate a bone marrow transfusion to someone with leukemia.
A Q-tip swab on the inside of the cheek is all that is needed from the potential donors.
Donating marrow has no long-term impact on the donor’s health and can help save the life of the leukemia patient.
If anyone is interested, more info is available at marrow.org. Less than 4 percent of the eligible people have signed up.
I am writing this letter to let our community know about this important cause.
