Bone Marrow Match?

phx childrens hospital is doing testing this thursday from 10am-12 or you can get a kit in the mail http://www.marrow.org/JOIN/index.html

the testing is a cheek swab only...then if you get matched, they do a blood test to confirm that you are the best match, but the whole process would take at least 6-8 weeks before you would have to make the decision on whethter to actually give marrow


  1. is there a better age group that should be tested? can a child give or be tested?

  2. all the info to donate is on the link...age matters, as does other conditions...medications, back conditions, weight etc. read info first
