Since my journey started I have been finding out more and more about the ways to raise awareness of the need to find bone marrow donors. My poll shows that over 50% of the respondents either didn’t know anything about becoming a donor, or were put off as they thought it involved invasive surgery. Hopefully I am helping to raise the awareness, and I know quite a few of you are now looking into registering.
For those of you who are scared by the prospect, and I know many of us are very squeamish (although I am getting used to that by now), these days stem cell technology and transplants really make it very simple and not scary at all. You can find out more about that at:
The Delete Blood Cancer charity is a new one to me, I only found out about it today, and Zig has already put his name down! The reason it’s so exciting is because they take registrations up to age 55, and given our ages – that makes it accessible to a whole load of our friends.
Registering with them is easy, so please make a difference and do it today if you are able – just follow this link: www.deletebloodcancer.org.uk/en/register-now
Thank you 🙂
