Interested in Donating Bone Marrow

As yet we do not know if Ed will require a Bone Marrow Transplant but the wheels are starting to be set in motion should he require. A number of you have offered to be tested which is a very big and generous offer. There may be some further testing within the family to find a match but apparently they are just as likely to find a suitable match on the Bone Marrow Donor Registry than within the family.

I will provide the link at the end of this post should you want more information but to follow is a quick summary. In short you will need to join the Australian Bone Marrow Donor Registry through the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. It is not possible to register your donation for an individual but by registering with the Australian Bone Marrow Donor Bank (ABMDR) it means they will definitely search the Bank for a match with Ed and should your donation be compatible for Ed then they would of course contact you.

Here is the link should you be interested:
