Late yesterday, it was reported that two bone marrow donor matches were found for Jasmina. Amazingly, the “One for Jasmina” site reports that on Tuesday, it was determined that Jasmina’s cancer is in remission. In a world where there is so much bad news and negative news everyday, it’s nice to wake up to news like this.
On a related note, if you have not requested your kit from DKMS, it’s not too late to do so. While Jasmina may not need your help, you never know when you might be a match for another less newsworthy case. It literally took me no more than three minutes to complete the swabs and another two minutes or so to complete the registration form. The form and swabs are mailed back in two separate postage-paid envelopes. It couldn’t be easier or more painless.
