BONE MARROW DONORS - DKMS AMERICAS

WHAT: Bone Marrow Donor
WHERE: I became a donor at Main Street Books, in St. Charles, Mo. (of all places!)
WHEN: Summer of 2007
WHY: I was doing a book signing there and author Karen Tripp was having one right after me. (She's the author of God Is Bigger Than Your Cancer and God Is Bigger Than Your Grief.)
WHY #2: I don't remember why exactly she was also "hosting" a bone marrow drive during her book signing, but if she hadn't been doing it there, I wouldn't have had such an easy opportunity.
HOW: A simple Q-tip swab inside both sides of your mouth; cheek area.
FINAL RESULT: I hope I can one day help save a life.......Priceless!
