Many potential donors I've spoken to express considerable anxiety about the donation process itself, which is understandable. "Marrow" is a very powerful word. Which is why this article from the Concord Monitor is so valuable. In it, 41-year-old Bob Morrill relates the entire experience of donating, from his initial registration through to the donation itself and its aftereffects. It should be pointed out that not all marrow donations work exactly the same, but his experience lines up with what we've read elsewhere. A must-read.
