I need $52

Seeing as thought I haven't gotten the OK to purchase next year's school supplies, I don't see my hubby handing me fifty-two buck for this.

Justin, whose last name is not being disclosed at the request of the U.S. Department of Defense, is a Navy SEAL and former Spotswood resident who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. The Navy is turning to Justin's hometown community to help him find a bone marrow stem cell donor who could save his life.

For those in his community, the cheek swab is free. But, if you want to join the bone marrow registry (which is where all those tested end up), there is a $52 fee to offset the cost.
