Five years after my mother survived her fight with leukemia, I was found to be a match for another person. I wasn't able to help my mom, but I felt just like you - I have a purpose!!! - to be able to have the privilege to help someone else.

Dear Sara, What a brave act of selflessness. You are a hero.

Great article, such joy! Totally deserves being "a match" because of the great attitude. Congratulations!

Sara, I am so happy to hear you will have a chance to donate your marrow and give someone and their family HOPE. We would love for you join us at the Be The One Run on August 29th that will take place at Jetton Park in Cornelius, NC which is near Charlotte. Please feel free to contact me at teammarrow@hmsracing.com Pam Heaton Hendrick Marrow Program

Amazingly inspiring post, Sara. Hoping we get more and more donors to register. Such a small gift for such a large return for the recipient. Congratulations on your graduation and I wish you success in all that you aspire to do.

That is big news! Yes, for you, it is something gratifying. But for the recipient, it is the potential for a future. My son had a transplant almost 2 years ago. He wasn't yet a teen. I can happily say he is a healthy, 13 yr old boy with a full life ahead of him. (We ended up using cord blood, so not quite the same as marrow, but still life-giving, life-altering, all the same.) Be proud of what you're doing. The recipients family will be forever grateful for your generosity.

That's great, Sara! Looking back, wasn't it both "no big deal" and, at the same time, a "huge deal"? At least, that's what I found -- "no big deal" because the donation procedure is so much easier than I thought, and "a huge deal" because it had such an unexpected emotional impact on me. When I did my PBSC donations, I wrote down the details of my experience to convince others to think about signing up as donors. Here's a link to that writeup: http://www.redlefsen.com/redlefsen/Lorenzs_PBSC_Donations/Entries/2004/3/26_PBSC_Donation_Writeup.html If it fits into your life situation, please consider signing up as a donor!

Congratulations! My husband's brother was a match for him, he had his transplant last February, and is doing wonderful. Words can not describe how grateful I am to him. I have since registered as a donor, I pray someday I can pay it forward.

Sara - this is a great story. I am also a Clemson graduate and it's great to have something in common. I also wonder if someday I will get a call. Take care and best of luck with you journey of life!

Dear Sara, God bless you for your unselfish act of giving the gift of life to another. You are an example of the quote - Happiness begins where selfishness ends!!!! May our precious Lord continue to bless you and your recipient each and every day.
