After years and years of wanting to join the bone marrow registry, I finally discovered that you don’t even have to leave your house to join! At Be the Match, the new name for the bone marrow registry, all you have to do is fill out a questionnaire and then wait for a kit to be delivered by mail within two weeks. Then, taking a few swabs in your mouth, you send back and wait. I hope to be able to help someone one day in this aspect.
