Just got notified that in 5 days I will be officially too old to donate bone marrow. But man, I tried! A campaign at DHMC many years ago was the easiest thing. I never dreamed that my husband would eventually be a bone marrow donor for his identical twin. Even then it was not a successful graft. I got to see first hand the love, heartbreak, and longing of family---and know that, while I might be aging out of this myself, hopefully I can pay it forward here.
If you would like to join me, here's how: http://bethematch.org or just talk with your doctor.
Speaking of the Prouty....last year my husband rode in honor of his twin brother David, his sisters Nancy and Karen, and his neice Shelly. Team Second Hand Lions raised several thousand dollars for cancer research. When the teams are posted this year, he'd be honored to have your support.
