Last weekend, I was reading Marie Claire, OOHING and AAHING over the products, shoes and bags, when I read one article that made me drop everything.
Caitlin Emma talked about how she became a bone marrow donor. I didn't realize being a donor was as easy as swabbing your cheeks! Her story explains how years later, she was contacted because she was a match to a young child with leukemia. The story explains how the donation works, who pays for it and (SPOILER ALERT) has a happy ending. So, I figured if it's that easy to save a life, what's stopping me?
I went to the website mentioned in the story, answered a few questions and figured it would be a few weeks before I received a swab kit in the mail.
I got it in days. This morning, I opened the package.
So, there. I did it.
