That's awesome that you donated! :-) I joined the registry after watching a True Life documentary about it on MTV. I haven't been contacted yet, though. Anyway, my question is this: Did you have any side effects like nausea or headaches from the drug they gave you?

That doesn't sound too bad. I would totally do that if I'm ever needed. You're right in saying that it's nothing compared to what the other person is probably having to go through with cancer. Do you know of anyone who had to have their marrow extracted through surgery? If so, do you know if it's painful?

Also, if you were on the receiving end of a transplant, do you think you'd want to keep in touch with your donor? I definitely think I would. I'd probably feel a connection with them for the rest of my life.
