I want to become a Bone Marrow Donor. Is anyone here a bone marrow donor that can tell me more about it?

Any help is appreciated!

  • I'm one the bone marrow registry here in Canada. It was really easy. I filled out a questionaire online, then I was contacted to have some blood drawn (just at a local lab) and that was it. So they have the basics and if I'm a preliminary match there'll be more tests, but to be added to the registry was super easy. And while the acutal act of donating marrow might be painful, I've been so lucky to have healthy kids that I feel it's the least I can do to give back.
