Regarding Amit Gupta, my friend who was recently diagnosed with leukemia, I heard some pretty startling news last night. A friend was trying to convince her friend to get swabbed and join the bone marrow donor registry. Her friend was adamantly opposed because she was afraid she could die, or be harmed by the procedure. Well, folks, this is just plain wrong. Donating bone marrow is very similar to donating blood. Just watch this video to see what it’s like:

The biggest commitment you’ll make is time. But just think about it, a few minutes of your life to extend someone’s life by decades? That’s priceless.
