KU student organizing marrow donor drive in honor of husband with lymphoma

In case someone may have reservations about donating stem cells it is not the same procedure it was years ago. If you are a match you will be given injections to boost your stem cells and then at the time of the transplant you go through a blood draw that removes the stem cells from your blood to be used. it is an amazing gift to to be able to give to someone. Also, the closer the match the fewer issues with rejection the person recieving them will have. The more people on the list the better the odds.
