Never made an actual blog entry before, so please don't go too hard on me here and sorry if there's any messed up formatting.
First of all, I encourage everybody to read the article that crazy eyes MGoUser ಠ_ಠ referred to in his recent blog post about future Michigan softball player, Aidan Falk. It is a great story and even better testament to the high level of character possessed by athletes recruited to play at Michigan.
HOWEVA, what resonated the most with me while reading this article was when it mentioned finding compatible bone marrow donors for those in need can be a challenge. I mean, imagine if you had someone you love die despite their illness being completely curable. Personally, I'd probably be upset the rest of my life based on the assumption such a tragedy only occurred just because some person out there that would have been a proper match simply wasn't in the registry.
With that said, if anyone hasn't realized that with virtually no time or effort, they can enter themselves into the bone marrow donor registry, please do so.
This was actually mentioned on the board a couple years ago, but just go to the website www.dkmsamericas.org to do a good deed.
[MOD EDIT - last paragraph removed for the benefit of the OP....yeah, don't shoot a good deed in the foot, especially with machine gun. - LSA]
