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 also wanted to remind people that sometimes saying "Yes" isn't a choice. Enrolling in the cord blood registry was pretty popular at college. Now, a decade later, I'm ineligible to be a donor because of medical problems. I don't think that people immediately think, when they're diagnosed with chronic illnesses, "Gee, I should call the bone marrow registry and have my name removed."-- Laura
