    Become Bone Marrow Donator??

    Hello All,

    is the sentence correct "Become Bone Marrow Donator"?? Shouldn't it be "Donor" in this context? When is "donator" used? Dictionaries show them as synonyms but I've never heard anyone say 'donator' but only heard "donor"

    A good friend of mine received a bone marrow donation for non-Hodkins lymphoma from a man in Germany. She is in remission now. It can be a life saver.
