Be the Match

Today we depart from our regularly scheduled programming to talk about something important to me.

I opened my email this morning to find a confirmation that I have now become a member of the Be the Match donor registry. Be the Match is a registry set up to help match people with life threatening illnesses find possible marrow donors. Donating blood marrow is not an invasive procedure, it doesn’t cost you anything, and could save someone’s life.

As an adoptee, I don’t have access to any immediate family members who could help me out if I became ill. I also don’t know anything about my medical history. That’s one of the reasons becoming a donor is so important. You could be the match and save someone’s life.

Please take the time to go to Be the Match, read up on what they’re about, and become a donor!  It is really one of the most loving things you could ever do.
