Bone Marrow

I have a weekend update post with some exciting family news that I'm working on, but in the meantime I have to post about something that is near and dear to my heart.

The National Bone Marrow Registry is holding its annual May drive and is offering free registration kits (normally $50) to the first 10,000 online registrants or the first 36,000 in person registrants (click HERE to find locations near you). Matt and I joined last year. They sent us a kit with six swabs in it. You rub the swabs on specific areas inside your mouth and wrap it up per instructions and pop the whole thing back in the mailbox. It was super easy. A dear friend of mine, Barb, registered last year and just this past February donated her bone marrow to a three year old little boy who would have died without her. She was a bit scared but has since said that it was the most wonderful thing she's done.

Please register today. You may never be called or you may save a life!

Thanks a bunch!!
