I’m registered!

I had a really hard time coming up with a title for this post so I went with the obvious. I’m registered. Took some time this weekend to get onto the Bone Marrow Donor Registry. My heart strings were tugged when our local paper ran a story on the daughter of an Air Force Airman who was desperately in need of a bone marrow match. I’d never really thought about registering before but seeing the smiling 7-year old’s story and picture in the paper sold me.

This is 7-year old London Bowater

So I went to the fire department and got in line. The article had generated a huge turn out of locals wanting to get on the registry. London Bowater (the 7-year old), I hope you find your match!

As a bonus – I was rewarded with a Spokane Fire Department badge! Woo!

Pretty good turn out too! The volunteer I spoke to said it had been steady all day!
