Bone marrow recipient, Emru Townsend, passes away

Back in May, I wrote a post about the importance of registering with the bone marrow registry and being a donor (Bone marrow transplants - would you be a donor?). I followed up this post in June with a good news post, that Emru had been matched with a donor (Great news! Montreal man is matched for bone marrow).

Sadly, now I must post that in the end, the leukemia was too tough and Emru passed away last night, surrounded by his family.

God speed Emru. I only met you briefly, but your story touched many people.
