She had a bone marrow transplant about a year ago and thought everything was in the clear. Then, the leukemia came back. I had spoken to her a few times about becoming a donor. Now, for those of you that know me, you know that needles are not one of my favorite things. So, the thought of being hooked up to two i.v.'s for a few hours would NOT have been on my "to do" list a year ago. Times have changed. In honor of her, I really want to donate bone marrow. I can't right now because of this whole pregnancy thing, but as soon as I am able, PLEASE hold me accountable to becoming a donor. I really want to honor her life in some way, and this would be the only way I know how.
Off to search google for "bone marrow donor" info!
