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

My hat is off to both Jonathan and his wife Sharilyn for their pro-active, pay-it-forward stance. At a time when it would be perfectly understandable to get lost in self pity, they have chosen to come to the aid of fellow victims and to do something positive.

Here is a video link to Kansas City's KSHB Channel 41 that ran a feature story on the Mathews family during Jonathan’s initial bout with cancer:

In closing, I hope everyone will consider attending one of the three scheduled fund raisers and help this couple put their life---and the lives of countless others---back on track. If you are unable to attend in person, you can still contribute to the drive, which costs $100 per registrant, by logging in at:

Thank you for posting the LJW link to this story on your social media pages.

Don't forget to spring your clocks forward on Sunday for daylight saving time

This is also the time of year to replace the batteries in your smoke detectors. Fire safety officials suggest that reusing the 9-volt battery in other non-safety devices is perfectly acceptable, but do not be tempted to reuse them in other household safety devices. My personal suggestion is to install a top-quality, brand-name alkaline battery only.
