It's not painful AT ALL!!! And this is the BIGGEST hurdle - trying to get the word out that isRead More PAINLESS to SAVE A LIFE!!! The test on August 11 is cotton-wabbing the inside of your cheek. That's it. At this point you would be registered. If you are a match for Ann, your only "obligation" would be a simple blood draw (sometime in the near future)... like you're giving blood. That's it!! Also, if you're not a match for Ann but a match for someone else who needs bone marrow, that is a procedure done in the hospital under anesthesia. Again you would feel NO PAIN! Just the pinch of a needle to administer the anesthesia! As far as insurance, I believe it's all taken care of under HER insurance. The only things we ask is for a donation to do the cotton swabbing. Like it says in the article it's approximately $66 a swab but ANY donation is GLADLY accepted! PLEASE get the word out to your friends and family. If not for Ann for EVERYONE looking for a match. It's PAINLESS and practically EFFORTLESS!!!! If you could save a life.... would you?
