Bone Marrow Donation

CIDP patients cannot donate bone marrow. I was listed in the National Marrow Donor Program, but I contacted them after I was diagnosed with CIDP. This is the response I got:

[SIZE=2][INDENT]Thank you for your interest in the National Marrow Donor Program. This is in response to your e-mail letter concerning your change in health status. Based on your medical condition and the NMDP’s medical guidelines you would be deferred from the National Registry. We will remove you from the Registry at this time.
