I'm glad he made it, Purple! Did he have many side effects from the transplant or is his quality of life ok?

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.


awww dang girl. now you're really gonna make me finish. will def. sign up.

Yay Epitome! Merci.

@Bored well you're better than some...some people won't even do it for family! And I saw seven pounds but don't remember what it was about.

ETA and really my end is the scary one. The donor just gives blood.

no it's hard for the donor too. i remember helping my soror after she donated marrow. she couldn't walk and was really weak.

not that she didn't get over it--but it did take her a bit to feel like herself...maybe 2 weeks or so

I signed up back in 2009-2010 and tell everyone that helping out is as simple as a swab on the cheek.

Lots of luck to you and I hope you find your match yesterday!

I heard it is very painful process.  I would only do it if they put me to sleep or seriously drug me.  A lady who had it done said the pain had her pass out and her blood pressure went dangerously low.

I would really appreciate if everyone do their own research and make an informed decision about at least registering. Registering does not equal donating. There are different donor processes and experiences. Sorry to those who've had rough time as donors!
