Hey! You added me to your blogroll. That's really nice of you. You can put my last name on there if you want, though you don't have to. It's Reges. I think I forgot to mention that my step-dad knows you. Sorry if I've been a strange visitor & neglected to properly introduce myself.

I lost a friend to Luekemia a few years back. He was a co-worker in his mid-40's. They were never able to find a match. I joined the pool of possible bone marrow donors. I think that is something everyone should look into doing. All they do is prick you for some blood and of course if there is ever a match then you go through the process of the transplant, which is totally and safe and while not exactly simple, it is worth doing, obviously. If I am ever called to be a donor I will certainly do it for Chris.

I wish Kalamazoo were closer. I say that alot. Perhaps my friend Charmi will go.

Hi! Yes, I figured out who you were--I know your mother, too--though I wasn't sure about your last name.

I hope all is well in Iowa City.


C'mon! Kalamazoo is MUCH closer than Grand Haven! This will be a memorable event, and it is for a great cause. Bring Charmi and all your friends.
