Bone Marrow Donation


I'm donating bone marrow this week, and I know a lot of people are afraid to do that, so I thought I'd chronicle what I'm going through to help give perspective.

It's a five day process and today was day one.

I've been injected with a drug that's meant to increase my white blood cells. At the same time, I'm supposed to feel a little sick.

Nothing so far and the injections did not hurt. I feel great and my wife is doting on me. I might play that up a bit, pretend I feel worse than I do. Let's hope she doesn't read this!


  1. What you are doing is amazing. You deserve your wife's attention! I'm one of the people who are afraid to do that, but after reading your post I might think again. In the meantime, I donate to help a child
    and it's a great feeling to know that you're helping another human being.

  2. That's a great charity Mandy, one that we should all support

  3. I found that site very usefull and this survey is very cirious, I ' ve never seen a blog that demand a survey for this actions, very curious...
