In honor of my cousin who battled (and survived!) childhood luekemia, I signed up to be a potential bone marrow/stem cell donor. They essentially let you take a swab and rub it on your cheeks and they test your tissues and put you in a database where families can look for a match. If you are a match for someone they call you and do additional tests and if you are compatible after that, you can donate either marrow or stem cells. My body would successfully replenish whatever they take. Anywho, I told someone about this and they said it was nice...but they thought they read it was dangerous??? I had never heard this...and while I'd still like to help others if it's THAT dangerous I'm not sure I want to risk my life and have my kids without a mom. Does anyone know if it dangerous and what exactly is involved??? I just thought they shoved a needle in there and extracted it...Answer Question
