Marcos signed up for the NMDP registry in 2000 at a registration drive conducted by SAMAR at Princeton University. When he was contacted six years later to become a marrow donor, he did not hesitate for a moment. After donating, Marcos told SAMAR that “it all started when you contacted me, and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to give a [person] a chance at a longer life.” He also adds that he hopes SAMAR would like to thank Marcos for his selfless act and wish the patient all the best during their recovery.
“..many people would [do] the same if they found themselves in [his] position.”
