On June 1, 2010 our two year old, "Little Air Bear," was diagnosed with Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Type M7. After enduring 146 days at Primary Children's Hospital, Erin is now in remission and living a full life at home with our family. Her strong will and constant happy smile is an inspiration to us all. Through our difficult circumstances we found great strength and peace in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for checking in on us.

Entertaining Video on Being a Bone Marrow Donor

I found this video through facebook.
It is entertaining and very informative about the whole bone marrow donation process.
The Anthony Nolan Corporation is not where I'm registered, but the video really depicts what joining is all about.  Just a note...the video shows that you spit into a spit kit, but the National Bone Marrow Registry (where I'm registered) has you do a cheek swab.  Oh, and you most likely will not be getting a train to London to do the bone marrow donation (although, that would be nice).


Want to know what joining the registry is about?
Watch this video.....

    the whole process and concept is amazing! i think it's the coolest thing in the world that any one of us could be the match someone so desperately needs! so cool!!
