I’ve always wanted to help other people in any way I can. I’m currently an organ donor, but being in a same-sex relationship has restricted me from giving blood. I was thrilled to learn that your sexuality makes zero difference to whether you can be a blood stem cell donor or not. I couldn’t believe it when I got the call from the Registry letting me know that I am someone’s match. I felt so lucky that I could be giving another person such a gift. I immediately said “YES!” To anyone thinking about registering, I say do it! The donation process is super easy, just like giving blood. I had no hesitation, and I have zero regrets.
