Steve Raboin is a long-time poster on LGK, where he is known as: \_==o IxxI. his son, Tanner is battling some really heavy duty beasties right now and needs everyone's support.

this isn't an us Vs. them thing, this is a LA Kings family thing... so if you're going to the game on Saturday, head on over to section 115 and get your swab on.

For those who won’t be attending the game or would like to make a donation, please visit www.bethematchfoundation.org/goto/tanner

The registration process to become a potential marrow donor involves a consent form that includes basic contact information, race & ethnicity, simple health history questions and a signature. Once that is complete, the person registering does a self-administered cheek swab that takes less than a minute.

If you are a bone marrow match, you can literally save this kid's life. How awesome would that be? Get down to the game, get swabbed and help out a fellow Kings fan.

Since many of you here don't go to LGK, just wanted to help spread the word.

Please read and do the swab if you're eligible!

Apparently, yes (I'm not a doctor, but someone posted on LGK that you can do it despite consuming alcohol).

In any event, you can request the packet and do it at home and mail it in (as I will be doing, since I'm not going to the game).

Cool.. You should post this on the Ducks forum too if you haven't already. Imagine if a Ducks fan is the match? He might have to switch allegiances. I think that would be the only acceptable scenario of jumping ship.

EDIT: You never know, one of their 8 fans might be the match!

The info has been posted to the NHL talk forum as well. http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?p=32210865

Thanks to Buffaloed for accommodating the cross-post request.

FYI - you can request a swab-at-home kit if you can't attend the game, or you can make an online donation. Info is in the thread.

I promise not to say anything not nice about Helene for the remainder of the calendar year.

FYI, the procedure if a match is found is relatively straightforward. The bone marrow harvest takes place in a hospital operating room, usually under general anesthesia. It involves little risk and minimal discomfort for the donor.

I've been on the register for years, but there's another way to help these kids. Most blood donation places also do platelet donations. It usually takes about 2 hours but you can watch movies and eat snacks! You can donate platelets every 2 weeks too. Regular blood donations are twice a year. I've been doing this for about three years. They also give you points towards things like movie tickets. I've been to the movies many times courtesy of United Blood Services.

I know the initial shot hurts, but the people you help ar e hurting a whole lot more.

Just wanted to bump this one more time in honor of Tanner. There are things you can do to help many kids like Tanner, all it just takes some of your time.
Strangely, I started giiving blood because of another poster Game Misconduct. I wonder whatever happened to him.

Tragically and unfortunately, Tanner passed away today. They didn't even get a chance to find a match. My thoughts are with his family, so hopefully everyone will send their prayers out too.

EDIT: Whoops didn't even notice the other thread.
