I want to bcemoe a bone marrow donor and am not able to do so only because I am 64 years old. I am extremely healthy and donated a kidney on 11/3/10 at UCLA. I want to do more to help others and my UCLA transplant coordinator suggested I bcemoe a bone marrow donor.However, when I contacted the National Bone Marrow Registry, I was denied an application MERELY BECAUSE I AM OVER 60. I've read your policy that states: You must be between the ages of 18 and 60 to join the Be The Match Registry. Age guidelines are not meant to discriminate. They are meant to protect the safety of the donor and provide the best possible outcome for the patient. ..The upper age limit is based on donor and patient considerations. There is a small increase in the risk of side effects from anesthesia in older donors. I am willing to take any risk to save someone's life as I've proven when I donated a kidney. I want to be allowed to go through the testing and be judged solely on my health to donate not because of my age.

Hi Linda, Volunteer donors on Be The Match Registry never pay to donate. We reimburse travel costs and may reimburse other costs on a case-by-case basis. Thanks!

You are so blessed to be able to give in that way. I so much want to be that kind of giver. I wonder why they don't call. But don't have any insurance or money to pay for donating. Do I have to have money> God Bless to you both and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

Wow. It is easier than I ever thought it would be. I've been on the donor list for quite some time-maybe since 1997. I've never been called and I do hope to be called someday. Thanks for sharing your personal donor experience.
