Thank you for publishing “Marrow, cell donation helps others” (News, June 17). This is a cause that comes close to home for me. When I was a small child my favorite uncle died of leukemia. At that time, the doctors would test only his immediate family for possible bone marrow matches. As soon as I was able to, I became a bone marrow donor.

Not enough people know what's involved in becoming a donor. Many believe that being a bone marrow donor is an excruciating process. This can be a big deterrent to becoming a donor. Your article let people know that the donation process can be as painless as a simple needle prick. Hopefully, this article will enlighten people about the process and encourage them to become donors.
