You will not actually be donating marrow, but a bit of blood so they can test your tissue type for some medical stuff. For the rest of your life you could be called on if you are match to a child. Then you have to go to the hospital where the sick child is being kept, anywhere in the country and donate blood for 4-6 hours . The child will not be able to travel to you as they are very very ill. They then extract the marrow from the blood you donated. The family will pay for your transport and accommodation, but you would probably have to take 2 days leave from work. It is a major commitment and a lifetime one, but one that can save a child's life.
Please consider it, you could make such an enormous difference to a child - his life!
God Bless, thank you and lots of love
