30 before 30: Sign up to be a bone marrow donor

Okay, so it isn't quite complete yet because I'm still waiting for the kit and then I'll have to send it back it, but I'm calling it complete. 

I read through all the information on about what it means to be a bone marrow donor and the different methods they use. I also learned that only 1 in 500 people on the registry are ever called to donate, which is surprising, and that you stay in the registry until you're 61. So I could never be called, or I could be called next week or in 5 years. Kind of interesting to think about. 

This is an amazing thing and I really encourage everyone to look into it and consider it.
