I did this a few years ago, and it's super easy. You wipe some swabs around inside your mouth and drop it in the mailbox. Most people will never be contacted to donate, but simply being in the registry helps increase the odds that any one person can find a match.

Pretty interesting video this go around for me. I worked on Stanford’s Compromised Host Unit, which is their transplant unit, for 3 months as a travel nurse. Great hospital and great staff. I currently work as a Stem Cell Transplant Coordinator and being a donor is a pretty simple process since most centers are going with peripheral blood stem cell collections. The process is nothing that anyone should be nervous about, and doesn’t require any surgical procedures. If you’re not on the registry, please join.

I actually signed up over the holidays, partially motivated from seeing these videos. My kit just came in the other day.
Initially I was hesitant, thinking that the transplant would be painful. Upon doing research I found that the transplant isn't painful, though you may be left with a mild hip pain for 1-3 days afterwards.
It's really easy to sign up and I encourage everyone to do it. You might not match with anyone ever but if you do you get to save a life.
[–]BurtaciousD 7 points8 points9 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I know someone who was a match and donated. He was playing volleyball just a few days later.

Really? I’d always been afraid it was much worse. Hell, with two poorly done hip surgeries I have more than mild hip pain every day. Might as well be for something worth a damn.
[–]Beverlydriveghosts 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (4 children)
What is the process? Do they put you under and basically complete a surgery?
[–]thatmetalguy90 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (3 children)
Pretty much. General anesthesia and the extract some marrow from your pelvic bone. Donors don't have to pay for any of the treatment and it can be done at your local hospital, so you don't need to travel to the recipient's location.
[–]Forgeturusername 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (2 children)
They have a new technique I heard about on NPR, they inject you with a chemical that spikes your white blood cell count and put a needle in each arm and extract it out in the span of about 6 hours.

So if you are over 35 you can't sign up?
[–]Giraffe_Racer 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I'm not sure the exact reasoning, but the U.S. registry says doctors usually want donors 18-44. It costs about $100 to add a new person to the registry (shipping costs, testing the samples, data entry, etc.), so I guess they want people with at least a decade in the system before they age out.

[–]ccfccc 13 points14 points15 points 3 months ago (4 children)
I have donated peripheral stem cells (the most common type of donation) and it is a VERY simple procedure that did not impact me other than a few hours of my time for a few appointments. Being able to help someone survive by donating a few hours of my time and dealing with a few injections and having two IVs put in is a no-brainer. I strongly encourage anyone to sign up as a donor, chances are you won't ever match but if you do it's almost always a very simple procedure.
If anyone has a question about the procedure please let me know, I'm both a past donor and a physician so can give a decent perspective.
[–]f11 6 points7 points8 points 3 months ago (1 child)
I did the PBSC donation this year as well, and agree that it was painless. The actual donation is just like donating blood only longer. The staff at the cancer hospital I donated at were awesome. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Thank you for being a donor!
[–]rhcpds7 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (1 child)
Me too! It was so easy that I actually did an AMA during the procedure which folks can read here. An amazing experience.
So cool! Thank you for being a donor!

I was chosen off of the registry and donated four years ago. If you have questions about it I'd be happy to answer, and I actually did an AMA during the procedure which you can read here. It remains one of the best experiences I've ever had. Please join the registry.

Here's a video of the donation process https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=of_zdRz5TXg . I don't believe they do the stabbing your pelvic thing anymore. So, it's not that bad. Maybe someone who's done it recently or a doctor or nurse can chime in.
[–]Binsky89 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
They still do the pelvic draw. It just depends on what they're trying to treat.
[–]_Heineken_ 3 points4 points5 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Seriously y'all. Please do this! I did, it's free and easy. Takes about a month tops and all you have to do is swab your cheek four times and then you're in their database for 40+ years depending on your age. https://bethematch.org/
Wholeheartedly recommend this! Even if you never get called to action at least you're an option

don't forget that his best bud dropped school to help him with this list : ^ ) and don't forget to donate some marrow so that he'll get it faster! this is just e-begging at this point but he should at least just say it out loud instead of pretending he cares about the greater good or any actual causes
[+]NiceLogicFatty comment score below threshold-25 points-24 points-23 points 3 months ago (7 children)
I will never understand people who have cancer and refuse to change their diet/exercise habits. Eat healthy cancerous preventative fruits and vegetables, there is tons of science on healthy foods and their cancer fighting effects. Why sit there and be fat and out of shape asking for someone to donate some bone marrow, seems selfish as fuck since you're asking someone for marrow to sustain your unsustainable life.
