Bone Marrow Donation Results

In earlier posts here: and here: I discuss my process of being contacted to donate bone marrow. Below is an email I received from the bone marrow folks. My wife Nicole tells me that the boy is too sick to proceed. I continue to pray and keep him on my mind. I wish you would too, Peace DAP

Dear David,

Thank you for participating in additional testing to confirm if you are the best marrow match for the patient. The results of your testing indicate you and the patient are a suitable match; however, the patient is not ready for a transplant at this time.

If the situation changes and the patient does become ready to receive a transplant, you may be contacted again to donate. Additionally, your likelihood of being selected for another patient increases now that your additional test results are included on your donor record.

It is important to call us if you have any questions, need to update your contact information, or if there are any reasons that affect your ability to donate marrow.

Thank you so much for your willingness to help save lives. If you’d like to get more involved, you can encourage others to join the Be The Match Registry®, make a financial gift to the Be The Match Foundation® or volunteer your time. Visit to learn more.

Thank you again for your patience during this process. Your compassion and selflessness give hope to patients and make our life-saving work possible.
