959. A list

Some random things, in no particular order, that are (in my opinion) more challenging than donating stem cells:

  • Having surgery of any kind
  • Root canal
  • Food poisoning/stomach flu
  • Ending a relationship
  • Beginning a relationship
  • Maintaining a relationship
  • Obtaining a college education
  • Working hard enough to pay all your bills
  • Putting together an Ikea wall unit from instructions in Swedish (unless you're Swedish)
  • Finding a job in this crappy economy
  • Being audited by the IRS (so I'm told)
  • Traveling anywhere by air, especially if changing planes is involved
  • Chanting Torah

So I encourage everyone who is physically able to register with the NMDP. If you've lived through even one of the things on this list, trust me—donating stem cells won't seem hard at all.
