We can't thank him enough for his selfless act! Mr. Mike's donation process was a complete Bone Marrow donation compared to what Reid had, which was a Stem Cell Transplant. It varies case by case which one is needed, although Stem Cell donations are more common. BOTH can help save a recipients life and BOTH are very important. Listen in as Mr. Mike describes why he became a donor, the processes he went through if asked, would he donate again Unfortunately, not all transplants accomplish what everyone wants  Sometimes you can do everything right and still  lose warriors fighting cancer. We pray for the family of Mr. Mike's recipient and again thank Mr. Mike for donating!Reach us at the following...Email: randb@itcanhappen2u.comTwitter: @ItCanHappen2U1Instagram: ich2uFacebook: It Can Happen 2 ULinkedIn: Beth Besch
