We're two sisters on a cross country journey to register bone marrow donors. We've registered 16,329 donors so far and have been to 47 states! Ask us anything!
My short bio: We are Sam and Alex Kimura, sisters from Louisville, Kentucky who have been traveling all around the country since January 20th, 2015 to sign up bone marrow donors to help people with cancer. We've signed up over 16,000 donors in over 150 cities and found 137 potential matches for patients seeking bone marrow transplants. I (Sam) am one of those patients looking for a match. We decided to go to all 50 states this year to raise awareness for the need for donors (15,000+ patients fighting leukemia, lymphoma and other cancers and diseases need transplants) and to dispel the myths around bone marrow donation.

EDIT: A huge thank you to everyone for asking so many questions about donating bone marrow and stem cells and thank you for everyone that shared their story and joined the registry. Because of Reddit, over 2,200 people have joined the registry online! This is AMAZING! We are so grateful to this awesome community.
