We were all shocked this week when coast native and Good Morning America's Robin Roberts announced she has a rare blood disorder called MDS or Myelodysplastic Syndrome. Robin told viewers in a tearful announcement that she is going to beat this. Her doctors agree and say a bone marrow transplant should cure her.
Robin's older sister, Sally Ann Roberts, is going to be her donor. Robin is lucky from the standpoint that Sally Ann is a perfect match for her. However 70% of individuals who need a bone marrow transplant do not have any family members to match.
That's why Robin reminded everyone why signing up to be a donor is so important. And, it is especially important that more African Americans volunteer to be a donor as fewer than 9% were on the registry. But that hopefully is changing along with the entire registry.
Just 24 hours after Robin's appeal the donor registry over all went up more than one thousand percent. We hope that trend continues. And we are told that for those who match, harvesting bone marrow is now very similar to the procedure when you give blood. For information on how you can be a donor go to the health page on this web site.
This is a chance to make a difference in someone's life just, as Sally Ann is in Robin's case. There are many individuals in our country and state waiting for a match so they too can be cured and live their lives.
