Dismiss The Myth – The Realities of Bone Marrow Donation

To follow on from yesterdays post I am rebloging this post by The Will of 50 Strongmen, which gives accounts written by those who have donated bone marrow and the circumstances behind the gesture.

The Will of 50 Strong Men

On September 7th, the Be the Match Walk-Run St. Louis will take place at Tremayne Shelter at Creve Coeur Park.  (Registration and Event Village open at 7:30 a.m. and the Tot Trot, 5K and 1K events begin at 8:45 a.m.)  The event will help raise money and awareness for the National Marrow Donor Program.  There will also be a donor drive on site.  The event starts early, but you can still be a part of it.  To walk/run costs $35, and donations to the Be the Match organization are welcomed as well.

In honor of this event, I thought I would share some donor stories from people in the St. Louis area who are also involved on the local organizing committee for this event.  The goal is to “dismiss the myth” about bone marrow donation.  Read below for their stories.
