New. Improved. Stays crunchy in milk.

Good luck, whoever you are

Last week, I got an urgent call from the National Marrow Donor Program. Somewhere, there is a girl about to go into chemotherapy, and my tissue type matches hers. They needed to run some more detailed tissue typing, and screen for infections diseases. The NMDP sent a kit to the UC Davis student health center (the new building is right next to my house), and I had my blood drawn this morning.

I hate giving blood. They didn't need very much, but I don't get along very well with steel needles. I count it as a major victory that I didn't barf until I got home.

Now we all wait for the results.

Good luck, whoever you are.
