We are at it again! We hope to see you this spring at our 2nd Annual Markway Strong Bone Marrow Drive! We were incredibly successful last year, adding 164 people to the registry.
So now we are asking you to...
Join the Marrow Registry!!
(only ages 18-44)
YOU could be the CURE for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and other blood cancers. Take the first step and join the registry.
It only takes about 15 minutes and a cheek swab sample to join the registry!
If you are a match for someone there are two ways of donation:
1. About 75% of the time the donation is done through blood, similar to donating platelets or plasma.
2. About 25% of the time (usually if you match a child) the donation is done through a surgical procedure, you are under general anesthesia.
You join the registry once in your life, so if you joined last year we would like for you to come visit and catch up, or even volunteer! We will also be taking donations. :)
If you have questions please contact us:
Laurie Arthur Beining at firstname.lastname@example.org
or Denise Mosley at email@example.com
**We are actively looking for volunteers as well. If you are interested, please let us know!**
We hope to see you all there!
