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.

So wonderful of you to be willing just the same. The world could use more people like you Khan.

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.
