Things to do: Make a difference.


A while ago my friend T posted on her Facebook page that she had signed up with the Be The Match Foundation.  As you all know me, or should by now, I signed up and then had my husband do the same.

Very simple.  They send you a kit, you swab the inside of your mouth and then send it back.  Here is the link for you to sign up.

This week my husband received the call.  He is a possible match for a 23 year old girl with leukemia.  A little more testing and the wait is 60 days until he finds out the next step.

I called my friend T to let her know that because of her posting hubby has the opportunity to help someone.

How cool is that!

  2. I'm registered with this program. It's so valuable. Working in hematology and oncology, I deal with people who perform these transplants and those who receive them.

    You can, very literally, save someone's life by being a donor.

    Thanks for blogging about this!
