    I am on the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry and joining was one of the easiest things I’ve ever done. You (fellow readers!) can sign up here: http://bethematch.org/Support-the-Cause/Donate-bone-marrow/Join-the-marrow-registry/ They send you a kit in the mail and ask you to swab the inside of your cheek. You send the swab back and that’s it! Your information is added to the registry, which doctors search in cases like Ashton’s.

    One thing that most people don’t know is that if you are a match (which is, unfortunately, quite rare), many donations these days are done through a process called Peripheral Blood Cell Donation. It’s as easy as donating blood and you could save a life!
