To be a bone marrow donor you have to be under 50 as I recall. To be put on the
list if you are older than that requires a $100 donation. Feel free to check
the age thing but for me to be considered cost me $100 which seemed like a scam.
I would love to donate, unfortunately, I just found out that because I myself,
was a bone marrow transplant recipient as a child, I am disqualified, as a
healthy adult, from donating. They say that there is not enough science to show
if there are risks from a former recipient donating.
I'm too old...they don't want me...otherwise i would sign up in a
second. What a small price to pay for saving a life. Come on folks...sign up.
I'm sending this article link to my family and recommending it.
