Admittedly, with these newfangled campaign funding sites such as Indiegogo and Kickstarter, where they have their “Backers” or “FUNders” or whatever else they call those who give money to a money-raising campaign, me referring to my supporters as “Donors” seems a bit anachronistic.

However, there is a very important reason as to why I do.

It is, perhaps, a term the most near and dear to my heart…

For, it wasn’t a “Backer” who was willing to sacrifice her time, effort, and self for someone she didn’t even know…

It wasn’t a “Backer” who had to take off work, find her way to the hospital, prepare herself mentally for an operation, sign all the forms, wear the silly patient outfit…

It wasn’t a “Backer” who had to endure the days of pain and discomfort caused by the operation…

And it wasn’t a “Backer” who blessed me with her bone marrow.

She was a Donor.

A Bone Marrow Donor.

And she saved my life.
 

Please consider becoming such a selfless and life-giving Donor as is mine.

  1. I used to donate blood every year. I can’t anymore… they turned me away the last two times I tried. For the life of me, I can’t remember why. >_< I believe it has something to do with the medications I take, but I honestly don't remember.

    1. I’m sorry to hear she’s having a tough time with the cursed GVHD. If you think she’d like a copy of HOW NOT TO DIE, please email me your mailing address via my contact page and I’ll mail one out to her. Or, I could just email an electric copy if an ebook is better. If you prefer not, I understand. She’ll be in my prayers, regardless… as will you as her caregiver and biggest supporter, theycallmebetty.
