In the past few months I’ve learned of some friends that have silently been going through the pains of chemotherapy. Shocked just as they are, I decided to become aware of the things they needed. Bone Marrow. I was at an event held at Sunset Station and DKMS was set up at a table getting people swabbed.

It was simple and clean. They approached you with the idea that a simple swab from the inside of your cheeks would be able to identify you as a participant for bone marrow transplants and donations. It was free and easy to sign up. Imagine how you can feel about helping others with just a simple swab. I encourage you to do so whenever you have the chance and be informed of donating bone marrow. Dont let it be long for your health or the health of your loved ones and friends to find out how you can help.
