And I am a college educated person. If I got through school with this level of ignorance about the bone marrow donation process, there are probably millions of other people with similar ignorance about the issue (and likely, those people are not as quick to do research, as I am doing now). I don't think a few sentences in a FAQ is enough to combat this.
But I wouldn't be too worried about giving up any of your cells, besides brain/nerve cells.
Almost all our cells have the same genetic information (Red Blood Cells are one exception), so it is theoretically possible to turn one type into just about any other. Shinya Yamanaka's team made a huge step in that direction experimentally about 5 years ago: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Induced_Pluripotent_Stem_Cell
I'm not saying that this is a viable option if you run out of PBSCs (just as it is clearly not yet an option for you to donate skin cells to help Amit), so one thing you may want to find out is if your PBSCs are limited in supply--I don't know (and I am also not in the right demographic for this donation).
