Bone Marrow Donor Update

As you read in our previous post, Ryan is a possible bone marrow donor for someone that we don't know. He has done everything that he needs to do at this point (medical history & blood donation) and now we're just waiting to find out if he's the best match or not. This wait could be quite extended. What we do know is that this person in need of a donor is very sick. They may not survive to even need a donor at this point. We also know that there are very few possible matches for this person. They won't tell us an exact number, but we know that it's around three. We will only have two weeks notice if Ryan is asked to be a bone marrow donor. It could be sometime in February before we hear anything at all. So we've kind-of put it all out of our minds for right now. We're just praying that this person will survive and that they will find a donor! And we're praying for God's will to be accomplished in Ryan's life, whatever that may be! So that's the update for now. We'll let you know the conclusion to all of this whenever it happens!
