I would feel deeply obliged to give my bone marrow to someone, and know I saved thier life, or at least prolonged the inevidable. 8 years ago
How I did it: One day, a rep from NDMP emailed me and said that I was in the prelim. Meaning If i choose i could make the first step to see if i was eligible.
BUT I knew i wasnt qualified after i looked at the list of stuff that makes you ineligible. I was just prescribed oral steroids (singulair). That sucked, but it was awesome to know that i COULD have done it.
Without hesitation i would have donated if i were eligible. My mom didnt like it one bit, only because she knows how much pain and discomfort it causes. I should be used to pain, since i am familiar with the hospital. Read how I did it… 5 years ago
