    Here’s your chance to put your Jedi path in action.  From Jun 8-22nd, the Bone Marrow Registry is waiving the fee to type match donors so it’s free to you.  From their website:

    When you join the Be The Match Registry, you become part of every patient’s search for a bone marrow donor. You could be the one to save a life.

    And now, during the Be The Match Marrowthon, you can join online for free June 8 – 22, while funding remains. Our Marrowthon goal is to add 46,000 new members to the registry. Be one of them!

    When you join, you can also choose to make a financial contribution. It costs about $100 to add a donor to the registry. Your tax-deductible gift in any amount creates the opportunity for more donors to join.

    I encourage everyone in the US to register.  This is a truly life saving procedure that is limited by lack of donors.  They have ways of making the transplant less painful, though we shouldn’t let that stop us ;-)  I registered for this program when I was in the military, so I was able to just update my information with the department of defense registry.  But for new potential donors you want to sign up here.


    Today is the last day to register for free!  This is a chance to save a life, it’s worth signing up!
