A recent ad campaign to increase Hepatitis B awareness relies on high-impact tactics.  One ad in particular shows ten beauty queens in a pageant photo, each with sash and glowing smile.  The text asks us, “Which one deserves to die?”

Building on the different things people have shared so far, and the excellent process that Vineet shared on the 100k Cheeks site, here's a simplified journey of the bone marrow donation process. Each step has opportunities for improvement.

Modern western culture downplays dependency on others, instead encouraging us to "do it ourselves."  However, the strength and flexibility of an ecological system is measured by the number of "need relationships" it contains.  Let's rebrand "need."

Bone marrow donation is not as easy or painless as blood donation. And, many people may be afraid of the process. Instead of hiding the painful part, maybe we should embrace it.  The pain/sacrifice can save someones life. It hurts so good!
