Be the Match

Many of you know back in February started a long series of events for me (Caitlin) at the doctor's office. Long story short I have been discharged from the oncologists office with a diagnosis of mono and also an elevated cystothionine level. Now this diagnosis did not come until after countless blood tests, xrays, CT scans, and even a bone marrow biopsy. I left the oncologists office feeling very blessed that I did not have a cancer diagnosis and very aware that many people aren't so lucky. I decided that the least I could do to support these people was to join the National Marrow Donor Program. I sent my swabs off today. If you feel compelled to join as well, click here.
