As someone who recently discovered they need a bone marrow transplant, thank you for your consideration!

My favorite is probably op constantly dodging the question about what portion of proceeds he's donating, but they're all fun!

As someone needing a transplant, I had bone marrow extracted for a biopsy and was told the donating procedure is the same. I lay in a hospital bed in a room surrounded by three or four nurses/anesthesiologists, they started the general anesthesia (through an IV, but getting one in is painless) and I woke up an hour later a bit groggy and with slightly sore hips. I had liver failure back in October and have had several other procedures--biopsies and a PICC line put in, fortunately I didn't need a transplant--and by far the worst part is the anticipation. Everything else is easy!
P.S. thanks for signing up to be a donor! It's really awesome that there's people like you out there willing to help out those in need :)

So, monetized letters with extra steps? Can't wait to pay $10 to send some covid to a stranger!

Not sure if it really answers the question but I've always been a little overweight. I've been swimming for a while and I really am in decent shape, but not with aplastic anemia I can't walk more than fine minutes without running out of breath - everyone just assumes I'm a fat kid and that's why.
I guess it really comes down to people judge you by their first impressions, and it's not a great feeling
