One thing that has disturbed me since my diagnosis is the fact that I can no longer be an organ donor. I know it sounds morbid, but it was something that I always wanted to do. I have one friend who had a liver transplant back in the 80's who has lived a full life ever since. Author Steven Kerry Brown, another friend of mine, had an aggressive leukemia, underwent a bone marrow transplant in June and started a blog.

He is the bravest person I know!
Even though my blood and organs are considered unacceptable, I will still be an advocate for organ and bone marrow donations. If you'd like to find out more about becoming a donor, please visit
