Why You Should Become A Stem Cell Donor
With all the Marvel movies that have been released over the past few years there is no shortage of Super Heroes. Tony Starks, Thor, and Spider Man led the way as the world applauded their heroism. Those movies have been a ton of fun to watch, and for that 2 hour window it’s easy to get lost in the fantasy world they created, but that is exactly what it was meant to do right? Give us all an escape from the daily norm and provide an outlet for us to let go of reality for a awhile. Outside of the Marvel movies we do have heroes here in our own country, serving and protecting on a daily basis. For the rest of us that don’t serve and protect for a living, or dress up as Marvel characters for a living, can become a real life hero with almost no risk! Imagine saving lives without having to duck gunfire. Sure sounds a whole lot easier than fighting crime or engaging in warfare.
