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.
