I had the pleasure of watching my four-year old grandson, Lucas, this week. He was washing his hands after playing outside and seemed to be in no hurry to finish! I said to him, good job, Lucas, now turn off the water. He said, I’m still washing my hands, Mimi! I went downstairs for a few minutes and then returned only to find him still washing his hands with the water running at full force. I went and turned off the faucet and told him that we have to be careful with our water because most kids don’t have access […]

No just isn’t an option. However, it seems to be expected. Every voice heard on the phone was braced to hear it. Every response was prepared to overcome the objections given, objections that have been heard all too often. The employees that work with Be The Match and local hospitals hear it all the time. The group Delete Blood Cancer says 47% of those selected for bone marrow donations back out after being chosen for a variety of reasons. I joined the national registry because of my dad. He had multiple myeloma and went through his own bone marrow transplant. […]
