no just go to the link in my first post. You fill out a form to see if you meet the donor guidelines. Then they send you a kit in the mail. You just swab your cheek.
Giving also isnt that bad anymore. They give you anesthetic, stick a needle into pelvic bone and suck some out. But like over half the time they don't even have to do that nowdays. They can actually get cells just filtering out your blood on a machine.
If they go into you and suck it you would feel sore for a couple days, and maybe a little tired from losing so much marrow.
