There was a story on the national news tonight about a family who has three children with a genetic disorder that destroys their bone marrow - so they need a bone marrow transplant to survive. But finding a donor isn't so easy.
So this mom is challenging a law that says that people who donate bone marrow can't be paid. She feels that if people could be paid, more people would donate. (they talked about how there are a lot of registered donors out there but over 1/2 of those people don't ever follow through).
What do you think? Are you a donor? Would you be if you could be paid to donate?
