When Drew Olanoff was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2009, he created a meme that became the stuff of internet legend: Blame Drew's Cancer. Drew has been diagnosed with a recurrence. The meme is back, too. He needs a bone marrow donor--just one match. Could that be you?
Drew was there for me when I was diagnosed
in a way that no one else could be. Please read and consider being that person.
From his post on Medium:
this cancer came with a twist. the treatment i’m getting (RICE) is very aggressive, which sucks. in addition, i’m going to need a stem cell transplant, so some lucky person (none luckier than me) will perhaps give me their bone marrow. the drs call it a cure for hodgkin’s, which sounds awesome to me.
so what’s up? well first of all, it’d be awesome if you could get swabbed and join the bone marrow registry….even if we’re not a match.
also, our old friend blamedrewscancer.com will be coming back to life….maybe with a bit of a twist. stay tuned.

Ok, it’s not just solar powered. It’s also an anti-theft, waterproof marvel that keeps my phone’s power bar from ever getting into the red.Sure the idea seems obvious now – tuck a gigantic solar powered battery pack into an exposed slot and turn the wearer into a walking energy harvester. Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
You know the drill. You go to the dentist and they ask you how often you floss. You lie through your teeth and say, “every day!” (Bonus points if you have some cilantro or chives stuck in your gums from lunch). You don’t want to keep up the charade any longer, but rubbing that tiny strand […]
The Raspberry Pi Foundation has done outstanding work packing a fully capable desktop computer into a package the size of a deck cards—especially one that only costs $35. But if you already have a working laptop, why should you care? Oh, how much you have to learn. Besides operating well as a compact digital media hub, […]
Custom coffee vessels are the perfect piece of office flair, but it’s just a matter of time before your VOTE FOR PEDRO mug will start to lose its relevant wit. Why not have a new one every day, with whatever silly nonsense you want sticking off the sides? You can save big on your novelty […]
