A film by Our Better World.

Wilson donated bone marrow to Alice, who was dying of leukemia. “I like to use the same phrase that all donors use – no big deal. One day only, no big deal.” Many of his friends and family advised against it, believing it not to be worth the risk. He decided to disregard their opinions and found that it really wasn’t so bad - it was no big deal. In fact, Wilson found it to be such a positive experience that he wound up working for the Bone Marrow Donation Programme. Two years later, Wilson and Alice met for the first time. “It’s really something, you know," says Alice. "It gives me a new outlook of life; what life means.”

    I registered as a bone marrow transplant donor a number of years ago. At 74, I may be considered too old to give, but I hope not. I've used it--now you can use it!
