Yeah, you’ve GOT to hand it to him

I registered back in ‘97 with the Canadian Red Cross. Later, sometime in the year after my parents died six months apart from different cancers I was contacted and told I was an excellent match (I forget what terminology they used but I think it was “5/5”). I was beyond elated and 100% willing but needed to answer a few questions before I moved to the next stage.

Even though I told them I’d be willing to be celibate for whatever length of time they deemed responsible and that I had never had unprotected sex, I was disqualified because I’m gay.

My question for Brianne — would you have been willing to take the risk?

My question for Tony — it seems like this has been a life changing experience for you ... can you describe what it feels like, physically, to have saved a life?
