It's my 21st anniversary

for being on the Bone Marrow Registry. I joined when they had to take marrow painfully from your hip. Now it's done much like a blood donation.

Want to know more? Check outhttp://www.marrow.org/

I came close one year, but not close enough. If you have an interesting background - mixed race or minority - I really encourage you to join. Your genetics determine your bone marrow, and there aren't enough donors for people with certain backgrounds.

I myself am 100% mongrel.
