I can completely understand saying no to a blood marrow donation. It isn't without risks (as someone noticed). At different times in our lives, we may be able to live with those and at others not able. There's also time and a lot of pain involved.

I'm on the marrow registry. I hope that I am in a position to donate should I be called. However, my husband is not very enthused about the procedure. This isn't something I can do without his consent. I haven't removed myself from the donation list, because there's a chance he will support it. But until we are faced with the possibility, we can't know. So, someday, I may have to say no. But just maybe I'll be able to say yes.
