That's a link to Project Michelle (via Angry Asian Man), a website dedicated to finding a stem cell donor for a 26 year-old woman who has only weeks left without a transplant. I'm here only because I had a match. But consider that out of the more than 8,000 matches for me on the national database, it came down to *4* people who were available on the short timeframe I needed to stay alive. That's a wee bit scary if you think about it statistically. Michelle currently has no matches. So if you or someone you know has not yet registered, now might be a good time.
