As you may know, I became a volunteer advocate for the National Marrow Donor Program last year when my cousin Tami was diagnosed with a blood cancer similar to Leukemia called Myelodysplastic Syndrome. Her only hope for a cure, and future, was to receive an adult stem cell transplant. Thankfully an anonymous donor had joined the marrow registry. When contacted he agreed to go through with the donation and gave his stem cells to my cousin who continues to recover from both the MDS and transplant procedure. This cause is near and dear to my heart as I am now friends with many other patients who also received transplants, know others who are still searching for a match and I mourn the ones that didn't find a match in time and passed away.
You can make a difference by joining the registry and saving a life. If you have any questions please let me know. I'd be happy to answer them or find out the answers for you.
