I typed a long post about the bone marrow register, but can’t get at it until my new laptop power supply arrives (hopefully in the next couple of days). In the meantime it basically says: yes please, get yourselves on the register. It’s the only way to be tested for a match with me. They won’t do specific individual tests because the chance of a match is very small unless you are my sibling. If you are on the register you may get to help someone else with leukaemia and that would be amazing. Don’t worry, to register you just need to have a normal blood test. The first check of the register has found 7 potential matches for me – they need to make further tests but thedoctor is optimistic.
