I am so sick and tired of people saying how "PAINFUL" bone marrow donation is while they have NO first hand or even second hand experience with it.  The media has done a horrific job of scaring us to death.  How can WE possible effect the incorrect media coverage regarding the PAIN??
Watch this clip from the movie "Seven Pounds" which portrays absolutely FALSE information as to how one donates their marrow. 
FYI, all donors who have the privilege of donating marrow are sedated and all have very little or no discomfort following the procedure. All say they feel like they had a hard workout in the following days, a little sore and achy, gladly feeling this way knowing they saved a life!!
