Thanks Helen! The video has already received nearly 2,900 views on YouTube. I wonder how many of those have joined the registry. Big hug to you as well!

Great you were able to meet your donor. Mine unfortunately has decided to remain annonymous. Just know the donor is a 34 year old male. Still have the letters from my kids and myself. The donors in the bank truely are heros.Sign in or sign up to post a comment.

Oh. There are really no words for this. She is a true hero. It's incredible that you have been able to plan a meeting and look forward to seeing the photographs of such an amazing reunion! I signed up many years ago to be a donor, but was never called - and now I'm not only too old but also a cancer fighter, so I can't be an Ana for anyone now. It makes me sad. All I can do is pester everyone else who can to do it!!! XOXOXO
Luis I had my Allo BMT from an unrelated donor Feb. 2011. All I am allowed to know at this point is that he is 36 yrs old and he is from Germany. I have to wait 2 yrs to learn more about him only if he is willing. I was allowed to write to him. The letter went through my Cancer Center so he would not know my idenity. I know how you feel. It was so hard for me to write that letter. How do you say thank you to someone who gave you life. These donors must be amazing people. Let us know how it goes when you meet your hero. Different subject. When did you get your taste back? Bill
That is so cool! I got my cells this last September 20 from one of my sisters; and I feel so blessed especially since she is the only one wih no serious health problems in our family. I'm still recovering but everyday gets better. Anyway, it's so cool that you get to meet your donor! :)
That is so cool Luis. All I know about my donor is that he is a 34 year old male. I have tried a few times to gain contact with no success. Would like so much to let him know how much his selfless donation has meant to me and my family after nearly 2 years. Keep fighting the fight. I will do the same.Sign in or sign up to post a comment.

Luis, thank you for this, you have expressed so beautifully emotions that I have felt in this cancer journey. I never understood the idea that it was somehow a gift until I fought my own battle. You are a young man and have a long life ahead of you - appreciating the little things that make life a wonder. I have been on the bone marrow list for years - in honor of my father - but of course now they would not want my blood or bone marrow, and I'll probably be too old when the five years post-cancer period is over. I will encourage friends and family who can to join. Please keep posting! And be well. A big hug for you.
Hi Luis...you have such a talent for expressing yourself and making others able to relate to what you're saying. God bless you and your donor for making it possible for you to be reborn. Mari
Luis, You are such an inspiration to me. Whenever I am feeling sorry for myself, I think of you and what you have been through. I admire your strength and courage. Always, Lena
Luis, What a beautiful tribute to those who register and are willing to donate. You have been such an inspiration. You are looking great!
