Through the National Bone Marrow Donor Program, he was able to make a life-sav- ing donation to a baby girl. "This journey began in Au- gust 2014, when I learned my best friend and second Photo courtesy Wanda Burger Dan Burget "brother", who was bravely and valiantly battling leuke- mia, needed a bone marrow transplant," says Burget. "At age 29, he was facing an uphill battle and I wanted to do anything I could to help him." Along with many other friends, Burget immediately registered with www.bethe- match.org. "Unfortunately, I was not a match for my friend, Matt. However, little did I know then that, only eight months later, I would be getting a call to donate bone marrow to a complete stranger," he says. "All I know was that I would be donating to a newborn baby girl with a very rare disease." During the preparation pe- riod, Burget was given nu- merous blood tests, physi- cals and examinations. In August, he was flown along with his wife to George- town University Hospital in Washington, D.C., where the surgery took place. "The surgery went with- out a hitch and the staff at Georgetown were just tre- mendous," he says. "After spending a couple of days in D.C. as an out- patient, I flew back to Wyo- ming to recover in the com- fort of my own home and was back to work in record time." Unfortunately, Burget's friend lost his battle with cancer a few weeks before the donation took place. "He knew that, because of him, a little baby was getting a second chance at life. I will always remember something Matt told me when he was go- ing through his treatments," he recalls. "He said, 'I just thank God I am old enough to under- stand why I am in so much pain. I'm so thankful I'm the one going through this and not a little child'." Burger thanks his wife, family and friends, as well as employer Thunder Basin Coal Company, for their sup- port during the donation. "I encourage e reryone to learn more about the bone marrow donation process and to consider registering to be a donor. I hold the little girl and her family in my prayers as their battle continues." Burget is a grandson of Chester and Evelyn Hejde of Aladdin. He graduated from Wright High School and re- ceived his degree in Business Administration and Energy Resource Science from the University of Wyoming. He recently became a Mas- ter Mason in Sundance Lodge No. 9 and they are proud to call him "Brother Dan." Sheriff's Dispatch Blotter Sept. 7 - Two traffic stops, services.

"Clearing unused medi- cations from our homes is one of the things we can all do to help prevent prescription drug abuse and accidental poisonings and it's important," said Natasha Gallizzi, Medica- tion Donation Program manager and pharmacist with the Wyoming Depart- ment of Health. "However, we are also hoping items that could help other folks through our program are not lost." Gallizzi said items col- lected through take back events and drop boxes are destroyed via incineration. "They can be a great op- tion for the things our pro- gram can't accept, but we suggest checking whether items are okay for donating before using one of those options," she explained. The department's Medi- cation Donation Program accepts most unused, in- date, sealed medications, but cannot accept or dis- pose of controlled sub- stances, such as medi- cations for pain, sleep, anxiety or ADHD. Donated medications can be re-dispensed to low-in- come residents who don't have. the, prescription coy.- crage they may need. FOr more information or to find a local donation site or disposal option, visit wyo- medicationdonation.org online or call 1-855-257- 5041. Line: continued from page 1 also shared with the coun- cil that, at a meeting in Gillette, he and Senator Ogden Driskill received assurance from the SFC that the city "should be left whole". The council passed a motion to direct the clerk treasurer to apply for a grant to upsize and com- plete the transmission line project, contingent on the SFC making the match. Greaser also told the council that she does not agree the school district is following the fire code that the city has adopted and feels the council has the right to refuse to endorse the project and turn down the Department of Envi- ronmental Quality permit application when it comes before them. Mayor Brooks directed Greaser to share with the school and architects that he will not sign off on the DEQ permit until he has "satisfaction" that there is adequate fire flow.
