the more you know..

again.. working on the floor that i work on i'm learning quite a lot of things..

when you walk down the street you have about a 1 in 4 chance of passing someone who has the same blood type as you.. someone who you can share blood with..

but.. if you need bone marrow.. you have a 1 in 46,000 (roughly) chance of finding some who matches your type..

ben and i are going to a bone marrow drive that is open to the public on Sunday July 9, at the Community Lutheran Church (3575 E. Valley Parkway Escondido, CA 92027)
8:00 AM - 12:30 PM... if your interested in joining us.. let us know.. i'll set up an appointment..

*just so you know.. on sunday.. it's a just a blood test.. that's about it.. maybe have to fill out a form or two.. no major surgery or anything like that..

oh Id love to. Except last time I did that test the guy kept poking me with his tiny butterfly needle and missing the spot. And that was after I passed out twice after giving blood and not drinking enough juice.

So I guess I dont want to.
