Now I'm the bad guy...

At a recent family get together I discovered my cousin who is 30 years old needs a bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, it seems no one , not even her mother and sister are a match. Well when I went to another part of the house where I was alone ,she followed me and said she wanted to talk to me. She started speaking about her health but said soon she will start deteriorating if she doesn't get that transplant. I told her I would go through the test to see if I'm a match.She thanked me. Then out if nowhere she asked me if I knew who her father was? I was shocked cause I assumed she knew.She told she has asked her mother so many many times but she refuse to tell her.She said her mother told her she didn't need to know. She said she implored her mother to tell her cause now he could be a possible match .So I told her who he was and even where he lived.I told her he owns a store and where.She asked me to drive her there....NOW! She said she had nothing to lose ...but her life.So I took her to his store that his family has owned for years. I left her in the car and went in to talk to him. We knew each other since we were kids.But he was puzzled by my insistance to talk to him. I told him why I was there and who was in the car.I didn't even go into the " where have you been all her life"?. He got into the car and talked for hours.I just sat in the store talking to his family. When they finished talking he thanked me but I could see he was kinda choked up and crying a little. When we left she said he was going to visit her tomorrow and she said he promised her he will be tested.After the reunion was over I received so many nasty phone calls from my family ,especially her mother telling me to mind my business. I don't feel bad .If I'm the bad guy so be it.He might be a match and save her life

******* I have read all your replies and thank you for your support.I've been crying about this and now I'm just waiting to see if he is a match for her. She did tell me that even if he isn't a match someone in his family could be. She also said even if the worse happens she's happy to meet her dad.*****

Remember when ....

those children and teachers were murdered at the school in Connecticut and the NRA said " If only those children and teachers had guns". How come the NRA never said that in regards to Trayvon?

Spoke to my cousin this morning...

She said told me that her husband and children are leaving the US for good. She said the patients are running the asylum and as long as that is happening she cannot raise her children here.

The gun nuts and racist will embrace him.

He will get money...lots if it from his supporters...The gun nuts will have him make speeches at NRA conventions and pay him lots of money.

If feel so bad for Trayvons parents

Wow..how could he be found not guilty? Not even manslaughter?
