IAmA person who is literally donating bone marrow as I type this AMA!
I was part of the reddit sign up last winter to Be The Match and was called on to help a 26 yo female with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia.
For the past 5 days I have been getting injections of a drug called Filgrastim to help my body over produce white blood cells.
I am currently hooked up to an Apheresis machine that will filter these cells out of my body to be transferred to the recipient. I'm gona be hooked up for 6 hours so AMA!
Bear with me on the typing. I'm doing this one handed.
EDIT----I just got off the machine. Everything went great and my donation is off to help someone. If you haven't signed up yet please do so!
