Is My Sister Too Old To Be A Donor?

My sister has been tested and she is a perfect match for me as a donor. She turns 65 in August. Is there an age limit to donors? I've seen 60 as a top limit for people who volunteer to go into a donor bank. Surely my hospital wouldn't have tested her if she was too old, I'm thinking...but?? I don't want any ugly surprises.
Sherry Baby 62 Diagnosed 2/11/12 MDS to AML-6; del 20q and trisomy 21; Vidaza 3 month trial unsuccessful; ALLO BMT 7/2/12; Sister Donor 10/10 match; Chronic GVHD mucous membranes, otherwise all's well :0)
