Here's a Hero

Today, the girls and I met up with a friend .  She's in the area because her husband is donating bone marrow.  He's doing the donation as I write this.  It's not every day that you meet someone doing something so heroic for a stranger.

I'm on the bone marrow registry, Erin donated her cord blood to the bank.  Robin would have too, if her arrival hadn't happened so quickly. Dear readers, I encourage you to check it out.  If you're not on the registry, think about joining.  Most people don't get matched, but the more people in the registry, the more others have a chance at a cure for what ails them.  If you're pregnant, consider donating your baby's cord blood.  It's free to do, and if your baby ever needs bone marrow/stem cells, you'll likely be getting it from the bank anyway.  Come on, people.  When was the last time you saved a life?
