77. Register as a bone marrow donor.

17 March 2007: They sent me a little card, and told me to keep it in my wallet. Huh? I thought. Why on earth? Apparently it's to encourage others to register. So. Not in my wallet. But you can see it; I'm blogging a completed goal.


18 September 2006 I gave blood and registered as far as I know. I suspect they write to me now. But I'm assuming this one is done.

23 August 2006 I'm booked to give blood on 18 September and can register on the bone marrow list then.

1 August 2006 This one is interesting. I thought I'd have to change it from the start, because the Anthony Nolan trust, which is the UK's main register of potential bone marrow donors, takes donors only up to the age of 40. And I am 41. But the National Blood Service will register you until you're 44, provided you register at the point where you give blood. So I have the information, and now I have to go give blood. So this is started.
