    This is beautiful! It reminds me of how Jesus gave of Himself so we would live and not die. We should embrace Jesus in the same way! Gods Word says, " believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved".

    There should be a national database for anyone who wants to be a bone marrow donor, so ppl can get tested whenever there’s a match they just notify u, I truly believe lots of ppl wants to help but doesn’t know how. If you agree please like 👍
