Trevor Austin Kott

Five years ago today our very good friends lost their little boy Trevor Austin Kott to AML – Acute Myeloid Leukemia.  He was 6 months old.  If he had a bone marrow match he may have survived this horrible disease.  He had a rare blood type and there was never any bone marrow match for him.

I urge you, if you are not swabbed, get swabbed!  It is not painful.  It is simply a Q-tip that is swabbed across the inside of your cheek.  It is then put into a national registry and if you are a match, you will be called upon to donate bone marrow and possibly save a life.

For great information on bone marrow donation including where to get swabbed in your area, visit www.bethematch.com.

Until next time, the mothership is signing off.
