    Become a Bone Marrow Donor


    Please consider to register to become a bone marrow donor. It could mean a life for children and adults with leukemia and related diseases. From what I understand, a surprisingly --not painful-- medical procedure for the donor.

    Here is a story about it ...

    ... and here are some places to donate in North America ...

    ... the UK ...

    ... and other places worldwide ...

    Re: Become a Bone Marrow Donor


    Thanks for posting this and I've already begun looking into the process, mostly because it gives me the "willies" and that's exactly the point.

    As I looked through the site I did find one population that is not allowed to donate somewhat troubling: ... index.html

    There is of course the stereotype of homosexuals being promiscuous and apparently it can be shown to be scientifically valid through statistics, but I hardly see a reason why a gay man in a long term committed monogamous relationship shouldn't be allowed to donate.

    Just struck me as odd...reagrdless, a worthy and lifesaving cause that should be supported.

    Thanks for brining it to our attention.

    Hi - have just taken a look at this thread.

    A close friend of mine has just been through the ordeal of her husband having leukemia and having a bone marrow transplant.
    He is back at home - doing really well - and this procedure has no doubt saved his life.

    So - I must agree with Jundo - it is a supreme act of kindness to donate to the bone marrow bank and could save another human being's life.
