The FNPS: Episode 145 - Requiem for Darrell (03-17-2023)
Four years ago this Wednesday, our friend Darrell left this world. I wanted to take some time this week to pay tribute to the man by collecting songs by artists that were meaningful to him, and some stories from the people who loved him.
To learn more about non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and other blood cancers, or to make a donation of time or money, please visit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society website (lls.org in the US). If you don't have time or money to spare, donations of blood, platelets, and plasma can improve and extend the lives of those with blood cancers. I know they made a big difference to my mom when she had leukemia.
Also incredibly valuable and important is getting on your national stem cell (or bone marrow) registry (Canada's registry, the US registry). You may never be called on as a match, but the more people who are registered, the better the odds of someone surviving blood cancer. Registry is easy and painless, and donation is simpler and less invasive than it's ever been. A heartfelt thank you to all those who donate regularly, and are on the registry; you give us more time with our loved ones, and that's a gift beyond measure.
