Bone Marrow Registry Drive – TODAY

submitted by

In partnership with Delete Blood Cancer and the There Goes my Hero Foundation Augsburg will be holding a bone marrow registry drive in the Christensen Center on Wednesday November 8th from 2:00pm-4:00pm. It only takes five minutes of your time. A simple cheek swab registers you to become a donor in which time you could save a life. There is a huge need for donors. Six out of ten patients do not have a match so they will not receive the lifesaving transplant they need. You have the power to heal! Matches are very difficult to find because patients need donors who are a genetic match. If you are a match for a patient in need the national registry will contact you and ask if you would be willing to either through a blood donation or a marrow donation. Your participation in this drive could save a life.
