Update on bone marrow donation

Got letter today.

Someone else is a closer match.

I'll be aged out in a bit.

I feel rather disappointed that I'll probably not donate.

Sorry to hear that you missed out, I know it was something you really wanted to do, but it was marvelous of you to volunteer like this.

Still a successful outcome, and one entirely dependent on the willingness of people like you to step forward and help someone else in a very personal way. You're a good person Khan.

Well can you imagine what it is like for a recipient to meet the donor? Pretty cool, but fairly rare. I work in the industry. For the last 15 years that I have been involved (not directly, my organization is) we have sent folks all over the globe. It gives you purpose
