Hi guys,

I've been a member of the forums for years now tracking my hair growth and exploring TTT. Unfortunately have been dealing with health issues and need a bone marrow transplant. My family members didn't match, but maybe someone out here will. The doctors say a match is more likely with someone of your race, but there aren't many black people who register as donors.

To register, all you have to do is go to marrow.org. From there you can find a clinic convenient to you where they may do a mouth swab or draw a blood sample to see your marrow type. If you're a match then they'll contact you with info about the transplant process. Thanks for reading, spreading the word and possibly saving me!

My BIL had a transplant that saved his life a few years ago.

Hopefully a match will come thru soon OP.

Thanks so much for checking this out! I appreciate the support.

And yes they ask about blackness. I'm of Haitian descent which may be why it's even harder to find a match...not a big selection of Caribbean donors. But at the same time, they say anyone could be a match...it's a game of chance.
