Be the Match, Make a difference!
One of my favorite memories at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is walking through the Pit during the beginning of a semester and signing up for various clubs, events or sports. (Go Heels!) That is when I joined Be the Match, a not-for-profit bone marrow donation service that uses donated bone marrow to help cure people with leukemia and lymphoma.
To date, I have not been called upon to donate. And I have heard that the donation process is tough. But who am I to say no if I can help someone? Cancer is all around us and it makes us feel helpless, sad and angry. I hope for a cure every day. Because I'm not a scientist working towards a cure, I try to find other ways to help, like Be the Match, Race for the Cure, and Relay for Life.
I was not aware that September 16 is World Marrow Donor Day. Were you?
