A Gift Of Life (Part 6) - Chrissy Says Thanks!

Just returned from Hong Kong  hospital after executing an emergency medivac  (Medical Evacuation) for a client/friend yesterday.  Will talk more about it in detail tomorrow.

For now, some good cheer as Chrissy's bone marrow drive yielded 81 new donors. As a token of appreciation, Chrissy wrote a letter of thanks to everyone and I am putting it up here.

Also, my personal thanks to all those who have supported this drive, one way or another.
Thank you.

Thank you for your GIFT OF LIFE!

We would like to say a very BIG THANK YOU, to all the 81 people who signed up with the Bone Marrow Donor Programme, and the rest who showed up to lend their support even if they were not ready to sign up yet. We hope that they will do so at the next drive! Also, to those who generously contributed to the Bone Marrow Donor Programme fund. We collected $3150 in donations! The cost of typing each donor is $150, so every cent counts.

Special thanks to:

1) Alan and Peggy for their generosity in providing Aramsa-The Garden Spa as the venue, and the delicious food and beverage;

2) Shahirah and Chin for pricking the fingers of the 81 donors;

3) Kar Keat for taking time out to share his experience of donating his bone marrow;

4) Jaywalk and his blog friends for including the drive event in their blogs;

5) Chris Ng for mentioning it in his email to his clients; and

6) Those who could not come but still forwarded the email to all their friends.

Till the next one!
